NEW YORK, May 2021 — Bloomberg Media has announced that the Bloomberg New Economy Forum will convene on November 16-19, 2021, in Singapore. As the global economy emerges from lockdown, the fourth annual Forum will bring together the world’s most influential business executives, heads of state, innovators, and academics. Leaders from East to West, public and private sectors, developed and developing nations will mobilize behind the effort to build a sustainable global economy that creates jobs, reduces inequality, and improves general health.

“The time since the last New Economy Forum has dramatically underlined why the event, and the themes that drive it, are so important. The pandemic has shown how interconnected we are and why cooperation is critical,” said Michael R. Bloomberg, Founder of Bloomberg L.P. and Bloomberg Philanthropies, and Three-Term Mayor of New York City. “New vaccines show the power of technology and public-private partnerships to address humanity’s challenges. And the disproportionate impacts of the virus, and uneven global access to vaccines, have shown how far we have to go to build an equitable future. The New Economy Forum is a chance for leaders to talk with one another and think big on these and other key issues - including the challenges and opportunities around climate change. We’re looking forward to returning to Singapore, one of the world’s most innovative cities and home of the inaugural Forum.”

The Bloomberg New Economy Forum returns with the resounding support of host country Singapore, at a time when the shifting balance of power between East and West presents challenges as well as a tremendous opportunity. The intimate gathering will be limited to approximately 400 global leaders in a commitment to helping ensure the delegates’ safety by maintaining the protocol outlined in Singapore and innovating new ways of safely convening in person.

“I am pleased that Singapore would host the 2021 Bloomberg New Economy Forum, where business leaders will convene to discuss pertinent global issues. The second time Singapore will be hosting the Forum, following our inaugural Forum’s successful hosting in 2018. Health and safety remain Singapore’s top priority, and we will work closely with the Bloomberg team to create a safe and conducive environment to welcome all delegates here in November,” said Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Forum delegates will join the action and participation-oriented programs to develop a global recovery strategy for the worst economic crisis since World War II. As governments worldwide spend aggressively to recover from the impact of Covid-19, the race to net zero and other critical themes will permeate discussions within the Forum’s five editorial pillars — Climate, Cities, Finance, Trade, and Public Health. Face-to-face exchanges in Singapore will help define priorities, workshop ideas and explore scenarios to move the world forward in the year ahead.

For the first time, Bloomberg New Economic will also welcome a new community of visionary leaders for the Bloomberg New Economic Catalyst virtual event on June 30. These entrepreneurs, technologists, and policy innovators — many of them from emerging economies — are already creating a world-shifting change set to transform the future. The event will spotlight their work at the leading edge of areas, including space, climate, finance, and health. This collective will also play a pivotal role in helping shape the dialogue at the annual Bloomberg New Economy Forum in November, applying fresh ideas and big thinking to address humanity’s biggest challenges.

Led by Editorial Director Andrew Browne, Bloomberg New Economy-driven conversations are also being elevated on Bloomberg Media’s global news platforms year-round. The newly launched Bloomberg New Economic Daily newsletter, weekly segments on Bloomberg Television and Bloomberg Radio, and the virtual New Economic Conversation event series keep this highly influential community of leaders connected and audiences informed.

With Dr. Henry A. Kissinger as Honorary Chair and Henry M. Paulson, Jr. as Chair, the Bloomberg New Economy Forum Advisory Board provides support across these efforts. It is composed of more than 40 distinguished government and business leaders from around the world.

• Members of the Advisory Board include:
