Participants in the forum span the globe—East to West—fully embracing its inclusive vision. From the burgeoning nations of the Asia-Pacific region to the bustling metropolises of Africa and South America, representatives bring with them a range of valuable, essential perspectives.

Former U.S. Secretary of Treasury Hank Paulson, Gates Foundation C0-Chair Bill Gates, Didi Chuxing President Jean Liu, Tencent President Martin Lau, and Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani are just a few of the leaders who have accepted this unique opportunity to collaborate with their peers on devising solutions to the issues facing the global economy in the year ahead.

We believe that the private sector should play a critical role in creating, catalyzing, and implementing actionable solutions to the societal challenges facing a world in transition. We convene and inspire diverse global leaders to build a thriving, inclusive future — one where equality and shared prosperity go hand in hand with business growth and innovation.

We define a solution as a product, service, program, policy, or other initiative that enables the private sector to deliberately create societal good and measurable impact within one or more of our pillars–trade, technology, climate, finance and capital markets, inclusion, urbanization, and global governance.
