New Economy Forum 2021
A Global Event
The fourth annual Bloomberg New Economy Forum convened on November 16-19, 2021 in Singapore and facilitated face-to-face discussions among world leaders in plenary sessions and intimate breakouts.
Covid-19 held a mirror to society’s biggest problems, from climate change to inequality, forcing humanity to grapple with their consequences. But there is hope. Even as the pandemic still rages, the success of groundbreaking mRNA vaccines, the acceleration of the digital economy during lockdowns, and a focus on government spending to save lives and improve livelihoods demonstrate that humankind is capable of taking on — and overcoming — great challenges. Breakthroughs are possible. In science and technology, we’ve entered a new age of discovery.
“The time since the last New Economy Forum has dramatically underlined why the event, and the themes that drive it, are so important. The pandemic has shown how interconnected we are and why cooperation is critical.”
– Michael R. Bloomberg
To illuminate the challenges facing the new economy, as well as the solutions, we harness the full force of Bloomberg — 2,700 journalists, 280 economists and analysts in 120 bureaus, 500 photographers on assignment globally, and 100 billion datapoints processed on the Terminal every day.
Our editorial program spans five subject areas: Finance, Trade, Climate, Cities and Health.
A particular focus is the growing US-China divide. The New Economy cannot flourish if the world splits apart in a new Cold War. Bloomberg New Economy has been at the forefront of this global story, with the overarching question: What does a workable US-China relationship look like?
