We need to create a new platform for global political and business leaders to discuss opportunities and challenges brought by the emerging global order, led by the new economies. The Innovation Economy Forum is committed to promoting cooperation among all parties to discuss global issues such as climate change, social inequality, and social changes brought by technological innovation.
