Bloomberg New Economy Forum

The 2020 New Economy Forum, co-hosted by Bloomberg and the China Center for Economic Exchanges (CCIEE), joined global leaders from East and West virtually to confront the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic – and contribute new thinking on how to respond to the worst crisis since the Great Depression. Our remarkable community of 125+ speakers and 650+ delegates participated in more than 40 hours of plenary and breakout programming across 5 key pillars: Finance & Trade, Cities, Climate, and Health. Together, they identified solutions and gained mutual understanding necessary to guide our planet through crisis.
