OVERVIEW

2016 Forbes Global CEO Conference

Now in its 16th year, the prestigious Forbes Global CEO Conference will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia from Nov 29 to Dec 1, 2016. This annual event is attended by some 400 global CEOs, tycoons, entrepreneurs, up-and-comers, capitalists and thought leaders.

Delegate attendance at the Forbes Global CEO Conference is by invitation only, limited to qualified titles (usually Chairman, Vice Chairman, CEO and President from global headquarters) and is at the discretion of Forbes.

Fee does not include travel and accommodation costs.


AGENDA

Rising to the Challenge

Whether running a public company or a family firm, CEOs from around the world face multiple issues this year. Global growth is forecasted by the World Bank to be just 2.4% this year. Some advanced economies are gaining speed while many emerging markets are facing volatility and weaker growth. Technology is providing opportunities but also dramatic shifts in competitive landscapes. Security issues have become of heightened concern, brought about by tragic events around the globe. The U.S. is having a presidential election, with candidates jostling for position. The Federal Reserve has raised rates, but remains cautious, adding to uncertainty. In this fluid environment, the best of the best capitalize on new opportunities—both in business and investments. True leadership is forged in such periods, as they rise to the challenge.

Where is the world economy heading? It has become increasingly complex to identify an answer. Often global trends have many moving parts, whether it is uncoordinated interest rate changes, paradigm shifts in technology, or raised security risks. Emerging markets are no longer the stars for investors. Larger countries, such as China, are grappling with economic transition. With subdued growth worldwide, some political leaders are  leaning towards nationalism and protectionism. Yet global agreements such as TPP are being pushed to open markets. New global financial institutions such as the China-led AIIB are being developed. Increased global connectivity and communications bring both benefits and risks. The world’s largest economy will be electing a new president, with huge repercussions. Our panel of thought and business leaders will give their insights into the shape of things to come.
