This forum will bring business and governments from across the globe together to discuss how we shape and navigate the next global economic era. A critical issue this group will address is how to meet the world’s growing energy needs. Affordable energy will be necessary for economies to expand. Providing affordable energy while mitigating the risk of climate change is a dual challenge that will require innovative solutions. ExxonMobil looks forward to the discussion.
