Launched in 2016, the annual Horasis Global Meeting is one of the world’s foremost discussion forums, offering an ideal platform to explore and foster cooperation, impact investing and sustainable growth across the world. Participants are poised to discuss means of restoring faith in the idea of an egalitarian globalization and to devise actionable plans for ensuring that the fruits of globalization are more evenly distributed.
This year, politicians and business leaders will meet to debate and advance policies that could give rise to a more fair form of globalization, capable of nurturing and sustaining economic development globally to the benefit of all segments of society. Over the course of the four-day event, talks and discussions will be held on topics such as sustainable development, populism, climate change, cryptocurrencies, the next financial crisis, immersive technologies, diversity in the workplace, the fourth industrial revolution, the post-truth era, halting sexual harassment, modelling sustainable migration, blockchain, and many more.
The event will gather a long list of the world’s most prominent leaders. Among the political leaders to attend will be the Prime Minister of Portugal, António Costa, the President of Armenia, Armen Sarkissian, and the heads of state from Albania and Namibia. Joining them will be numerous CEOs and representatives from the world’s highest earning corporations, including José Manuel Barroso, Chairman of Goldman Sachs International, Galia Benartzi, Co-Founder of Bancor, and Deborah Wince-Smith, President, United States Council on Competitiveness.
“Horasis was founded on the principle that tackling the world’s most pressing economic, social, and political issues necessitates productive dialogue and collective collaboration,” said Frank-Jürgen Richter, Chairman of Horasis. “Gathering key leaders and entrepreneurs at this especially pivotal moment for global politics and trade, we are both thrilled and determined to form actionable plans for sustainable growth and a more morally decent form of globalization.”
The 2019 Horasis Global Meeting is co-hosted by the Portuguese Government and the City of Cascais. The event will be held at the seaside resort of Cascais.
