Opening Remarks Speaker: Michael R. Bloomberg Founder of Bloomberg L.P. and Bloomberg Philanthropies; Three-Term Mayor of New York City 8:40 am Opening Address Speaker: Wang Qishan Vice President, People's Republic of China 8:50 am Aftershock: The World Reshaped by Covid From the trauma of the global pandemic, a new economy is emerging. Global lockdowns freed creative minds, triggering breakthrough innovation in everything from healthcare and education to connectivity and logistics. Advances in fundamental science like artificial intelligence and gene editing are animating the business world. Meanwhile, global investors are rethinking long-term strategic goals and prioritizing sustainability. What are the pillars of this transition and how can it serve humanity? Speakers: Sunil Bharti Mittal Founder & Chairman, Bharti Enterprises; Executive Chairman, OneWeb Michael Miebach Chief Executive Officer, Mastercard Founding Partner Jane Sun Chief Executive Officer , Trip.com Group Moderator: Haslinda Amin Chief International Correspondent for Southeast Asia , Bloomberg Television 9:30 am Firestarter: Driving Sustainable and Inclusive Growth Speaker: Bob Sternfels Global Managing Partner , McKinsey & Company 9:35 am A New Paradigm for Global Business In advanced economies, policymakers have moved into uncharted territory as they rebuild shattered economies and restore jobs. Old orthodoxies about inflation and the role of government have been discarded as trillions of dollars pour into infrastructure, smart cities, and green tech, creating new opportunities for workers and businesses but at the cost of rising debt loads. Has the world found a more dynamic economic paradigm? Or does it all end in soaring inflation and years of sub-par growth? Speakers: Stacey Cunningham President , NYSE Group Piyush Gupta Chief Executive Officer , DBS Group John Studzinski Managing Director and Vice Chairman , PIMCO Axel A. Weber Chairman , UBS Group AG Moderator: Erik Schatzker Editor-at-Large , Bloomberg Television 10:15 am Coffee Break 10:45 am In Conversation with Dr. Henry A. Kissinger Speaker: Henry A. Kissinger Former U.S. Secretary of State and National Security Advisor Advisory Board Honorary Chair Moderator: John Micklethwait Editor-in-Chief, Bloomberg Steering Committee 11:00 am Two-Speed Global Recovery: The Dangers of a Widening Rich-Poor Gap An outpouring of stimulus is narrowing wealth inequalities within rich countries, but poorer countries with low vaccination rates are falling further behind — and may end up on a permanently lower growth trajectory. A generation of kids in the developing world may never fully catch up on missed classes. Now, rising food and energy prices are exacerbating hunger among the world’s most vulnerable populations. Rich countries should adjust their trade policies to support the emerging world. Meanwhile, there’s an urgent need to finance growth in countries left behind. Will multilateral institutions take the lead by offering risk capital? Will private sector lenders follow? Speakers: H.E. Dr. Philip Isdor Mpango Vice President of the United Republic of Tanzania Elizabeth Rossiello Founder and CEO , AZA Finance Dan Schulman President and CEO , PayPal Tharman Shanmugaratnam Senior Minister, Singapore Advisory Board Member Moderator: Shery Ahn Anchor , Bloomberg TV 11:40 am In Conversation with U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo Speaker: Gina Raimondo 40th Secretary of Commerce , U.S. Department of Commerce Moderator: John Micklethwait Editor-in-Chief, Bloomberg Steering Committee 12:00 pm Lunch and Breakout Sessions 2:45 pm Spotlight on Big Tech and Climate Ambition Speaker: Sundar Pichai Chief Executive Officer , Google and Alphabet Moderator: Emily Chang Anchor , Bloomberg Television 3:00 pm Post-COP26: Turning Net Zero Commitments into Action The enemies of climate action are procrastination and virtue-signalling. To stop global average temperatures rising more than 2 degrees Celsius both businesses and governments must close the gap between long-term net zero goals and near-term plans. How can citizens hold governments to account? How can investors put pressure on companies to invest more in green technologies? Speakers: Dan Jørgensen Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities, Denmark H.E. Dr. Rania Al-Mashat Minister of International Cooperation , Arab Republic of Egypt Moderator: Manus Cranny Anchor , Bloomberg Television 3:25 pm Equality and Climate: Clean Growth Models for Emerging Economies How should the world balance climate ambition and the economic realities faced by emerging economies? The pursuit of net-zero must help to drive growth everywhere, not penalize those in poverty. The task at hand: decoupling economic growth from carbon emissions. Developing nations are often worst affected by climate change; how are they approaching sustainable growth and avoiding climate induced damage to their people and economies? What is required from wealthy countries to help these developing nations with climate related projects and aid in a just transition for their economies. The $100 billion a year pledge made in 2009 has proven inadequate, subject to waste and inefficiency, so what is needed in terms of depth and allocation of climate finance in order to avoid catastrophe? Speaker: Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr Mayor , Freetown, Sierra Leone Uzziel Ndagijimana Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, Rwanda Ahmed M. Saeed Vice-President, East Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific , Asian Development Bank Josephine Wapakabulo Founder and Managing Director , TIG Africa Moderator: Manus Cranny Anchor , Bloomberg Television 3:55 pm Global Finance and the Green Transition The climate crisis is reshaping finance. Increasingly, asset managers — and even central banks — are prioritizing the environment. What role will banks, insurers and multilateral lending agencies play in the green transition? How can the public and private sectors work together to mobilize capital to invest in clean technologies at scale, from power generation to smart grids and transport systems? Speakers: Lynn Forester de Rothschild Founding and Managing Partner , Inclusive Capital Partners Liza Jonson Chief Executive Officer , Swedbank Robur Jin Liqun President , Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank Dilhan Pillay Sandrasegara Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer , Temasek Holdings Pte. Ltd. Moderator: Nathaniel Bullard Chief Content Officer , BloombergNEF 4:35 pm Mobilizing Capital for Sustainable Solutions Speaker: David M. Solomon Chairman and CEO , The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. Moderator: Francine Lacqua Anchor , Bloomberg Television 4:55 pm Can Technology Save a Warming Planet? Rapidly evolving technologies offer new hope for mitigating climate change. Carbon capture & storage is a promising solution, along with green hydrogen and nuclear fusion. Meanwhile, the price of solar and wind have plummeted. Will technological breakthroughs save the planet or will they delay the social, cultural, lifestyle and government policy changes that are needed immediately to avert catastrophe? Speakers: Catherine Macgregor Chief Executive Officer , ENGIE The Hon Dan Tehan MP Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, Australia Gan Kim Yong Minister for Trade and Industry, Republic of Singapore Lei Zhang Chief Executive Officer , Envision Group Moderator: Gerald Butts Vice Chairman , Eurasia Group 5:35 pm Closing Remarks Speaker: Justin B. Smith Chief Executive Officer, Bloomberg Media; Executive Chair, Bloomberg New Economy 5:40 pm Day 1 Program Concludes 7:00 pm Bloomberg New Economy Gala Dinner In Conversation with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong Moderator: John Micklethwait Editor-in-Chief, Bloomberg Steering Committee November 18 - Thursday 8:30 am Opening Remarks Speaker: Justin B. Smith Chief Executive Officer, Bloomberg Media; Executive Chair, Bloomberg New Economy 8:35 am Opening Address Speaker: Henry M. Paulson Chair, Bloomberg New Economy Forum; Former U.S. Treasury Secretary; Chairman, Paulson Institute Advisory Board Member 8:50 am Reimagining Drug Discovery & Medicine: Protein Folding & the Next Technological Revolution Science has led the global fight against the coronavirus — and demonstrated the potential of genetic material to transform life on the planet. The next half century is likely to see breakthrough progress against genetic disorders like Huntington’s disease, as well as cancer. Can this new science deliver healthcare with equity? Speaker: Demis Hassabis Founder and CEO , DeepMind Moderator: Francine Lacqua Anchor , Bloomberg Television 9:10 am From Sick Care to Preventative Care: Rethinking Medicine Global healthcare systems are buckling under the strain of rising costs, aging populations and chronic disease. It’s far better to prevent disease than to treat people after they get sick. How can medicine move toward a new model of care? What is the role of revolutionary new technologies like mRNA? Speakers: Bill Anderson Chief Executive Officer , Roche Pharmaceuticals Francis deSouza Chief Executive Officer , Illumina Rachel Haurwitz President and CEO , Caribou Biosciences Moderator: David Leonhardt Senior Writer , The New York Times 9:45 am Assessing Global Health and Pandemic Preparedness Will the fight against Covid-19 help governments to recognize the importance of pandemic preparedness, or has pandemic fatigue irreparably depleted our global resolve, setting back progress against other types of disease? Speaker: Bill Gates Co-Chair, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Advisory Board Member Moderator: John Micklethwait Editor-in-Chief, Bloomberg Steering Committee 10:02 am A Message from Bi Jingquan, Executive Vice Chairman, China Center for International Economic Exchanges (CCIEE) Speaker: Bi Jingquan Permanent Vice Chairman , China Center for International Economic Exchanges 10:05 am Coffee Break 10:40 am Combating Truth Decay: Restoring Trust The erosion of truth and trust-building among communities is a universal issue our society faces, permeating and stunting progress on addressing life-threatening issues from vaccine hesitancy to climate change. What is the extent of the decomposition of facts vs fiction? How can technology preserve, as opposed to tear, our social fabric? Is regulatory reform efficient and sufficient? Speakers: Patrick Foulis Business Affairs Editor , The Economist Sarah Hanson-Young Senator for South Australia David Leonhardt Senior Writer , The New York Times Li Xin Vice President , Caixin Media Moderator: Ben Smith Media Columnist , The New York Times 11:20 am Feeding the World: Agriculture and the Health of the Planet An overarching challenge for the planet: How to feed a booming global population as climate change wreaks havoc with global weather patterns, wringing the soil dry in places and flooding it in others? Pests are proliferating. Farming populations are being driven off the land. The quest for food security requires radical new thinking about the health of the planet. Speakers: Alloysius Attah Co-Founder and CEO , Farmerline Group Werner Baumann Chairman of the Board of Management, Bayer AG Founding Partner David MacLennan Board Chair and Chief Executive Officer , Cargill Sara Menker CEO and Founder , Gro Intelligence Moderator: Stephanie Flanders Head of Bloomberg Economics, Bloomberg Steering Committee 12:00 pm Lunch and Breakout Sessions 3:00 pm Firestarter: The Singapore Model The master planner of Singapore — responsible for some of the world’s most successful housing projects — reflects on how the pandemic will change the shape of cities. Speakers: Liu Thai Ker Chairman , Morrow Architects & Planners Kieran Long Director , ArkDes 3:15 pm Reimagining the Urban Environment Will cities come back? If so, in what form? One lesson from the pandemic is that the most successful cities integrate residential, commercial, cultural and entertainment uses into their downtowns. Another is that city residents all over the world are determined to reclaim their open spaces for outdoor exercise and dining, and offices for housing. The challenge of urban planners, architects and developers is to respond to grassroots pressure for more livable cities that balance work, living and play. Speakers: Chan Heng Chee Ambassador-at-Large; Professor , Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities Sarah Friar Chief Executive Officer , Nextdoor Yu Liang Chairman of the Board, Vanke Founding Partner Moderator: Kieran Long Director , ArkDes 3:50 pm Climate Justice: Protecting the World’s Most Vulnerable Communities The catastrophic effects of climate change are not evenly distributed: emerging economies and developing nations are the most vulnerable, even though they contributed least to the crisis. Climate justice demands that everybody — regardless of race, color, national origin or income — receives equal protection from environmental harm and risks. Our panel of Bloomberg New Economy Catalysts will explore the meaning of justice through their pioneering work: cleaning up manufacturing supply chains in China, using space-based technologies to improve lives in remote villages; and bringing clean energy to rural Africa. Speakers: Ma Jun Founding Director , Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs Shamim Nabuuma Kaliisa Founder and Executive Director , Chil Artificial Intelligence Lab Danielle Wood Director of the Space Enabled Research Group , MIT Media Lab Moderator: Haslinda Amin Chief International Correspondent for Southeast Asia , Bloomberg Television 4:20 pm What if? A Green Transition for Emerging Economies Trillions of dollars are needed to fund a green transition in emerging markets. At stake is the future of the planet: Emerging economies are where the battle against climate change will be won or lost. Will pressure on corporate leaders force real change? Can a revolution in green finance address hurdles, such as the developed-market standards defining most emerging market bonds, that prevent green debt issuances in emerging markets? Unlocking capital will require enabling policies that help countries meet net zero targets and improve lives and livelihoods from the ground up. Speakers: Natarajan Chandrasekaran Executive Chairman, Tata Sons Founding Partner Noel Quinn Group Chief Executive, HSBC Founding Partner Shemara Wikramanayake Managing Director and CEO , Macquarie Group Moderator: Francine Lacqua Anchor , Bloomberg Television 5:00 pm Closing Remarks Speaker: Justin B.
