President & Chief Executive Officer,
International Economic Forum of the Americas
I look forward to welcoming you all in Miami to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the World Strategic Forum on April 6-7, 2020! Under the general theme Connecting for Global Prosperity, this year’s edition will address the major issues faced by the global economy today as well as enable discussions on resilient growth and shared prosperity for the future.
Recent economic, political and social changes have raised numerous questions as to what are the best ways to drive positive change and foster economic growth across the globe. At the same time, the increasing pace and scale of technological disruption further underlines the importance of understanding today’s international environment as well as rethinking the business strategies and public policies needed to confront the many challenges of globalization.
The International Economic Forum of the Americas has, since its inception, provided strategic platforms and engaged speakers and attendees to better understand globalization and its impacts, and this edition will be no exception.
I also wish to thank our sponsors and partners, particularly our Presenting Partner, Miami Dade College, and our Strategic Partners, the Embassy of Qatar in the United States, Atlantic Broadband, Miami International Airport and Port Miami, for their continued support and engagement.
I very much hope that it will be possible for you to attend the 2020 World Strategic Forum and look forward to seeing you there!
