KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 4): PKR president-elect Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will be among influential business and government leaders speaking at Bloomberg’s inaugural New Economic Forum to be held in Singapore on Nov 6 and 7. 

Other prominent speakers will include former chairperson of the US Federal Reserve Board, Janet Yellen; International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde; and former assistant to the US president for economic policy, Gary Cohn. 

Also scheduled to appear as speakers and participants are Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani, Indonesian Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati, Monetary Authority of Singapore managing director Ravi Menon and former Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd. 

“The forum will convene a first-ever gathering of 400 preeminent leaders to begin seeking private sector-led solutions to challenges created by a world economy in transition, increasingly led by China and India as well as rising powers in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America,” said a statement issued by the organisers today. 

The goal of the forum is to identify emerging issues which governments have been unable or unwilling to address or commit to steps that will ensure global stability and growth, the statement said. 

Michael R. Bloomberg, the founder of Bloomberg LP, will host the forum which will cover topics such as “Remaking Global Trade”, “Managing the Supply Chain Threat” and “The Future of Global Manufacturing”. 

Other topics include “Energy Challenges in the New Economies”, “Managing the Next Financial Shock”, “Financing the New Economy”, “Supercities in the 21st Century” and “The Geopolitics of Markets”.
