Forbes Global CEO Conference
Now in its 12th year, the prestigious Forbes Global CEO Conference will be held in Dubai from October 21 – 23, 2012. This annual event is attended by some 400 global CEOs, tycoons, entrepreneurs, up-and-comers, capitalists and thought leaders.
The Race Ahead
Back from the brink of a global recession, the race is on for leaders of the world economy to build a stable recovery and chart a new course for durable growth and lasting prosperity. The stakes are high: the world, with a 7-billion strong population, faces mounting obstacles on its track, with risks such as rising oil prices, unemployment, volatile financial markets, and the competition for resources. In the developed world, policymakers must balance the need for austerity to address debt concerns, while providing enough stimulus to generate growth. Emerging countries are the rising economic powers of the world, but they face a more moderate outlook for growth after years of breakneck expansion. As the world economy regains its footing, how can leaders of economic governance keep crisis at bay and put in motion the right policies that will bolster confidence among investors, companies and consumers? How can global CEOs and entrepreneurs take the reins and lead the pack with both speed and endurance? How can they strategize to be the first in the most promising markets and dominate? How should leaders who are facing voters run for power? Beyond the finish line, the champions will mark their success in the winners circle. There is no better place than Dubai, a global city ascending in the new world order, to engage the top minds in business on how to win the race ahead.
