Event Details

The World Ahead 2023 will build on more than three decades of publishing success. This will be the 37th edition. It will consider the interlocking crises facing the world in the year ahead: the global consequences of the war in Ukraine for geopolitics, energy and food supplies; the struggle to control inflation, a side-effect of the pandemic magnified by the war; the energy crunch's impact on the transition to renewables; and China's uncertain post-pandemic path.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Intelligence Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please contact us at eicn_hongkong@economist.com
