Policy Agenda

I think it is critically important for like-minded nations and business people to have an ongoing dialogue on matters of mutual interest with respect to the economy. Without such a forum, without this dialogue, our ability to consult on, react to, embrace and leverage economic and geopolitical shifts is minimal.
