Mike Bloomberg today announced the second Bloomberg Global Business Forum will be held in New York City on September 26th during the UN General Assembly. Supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the daylong forum is the sole convening dedicated to encouraging presidents, prime ministers and CEOs to collaborate on trade issues by reaching a better understanding of one another’s challenges and mutual opportunities, thereby strengthening global economic prosperity.

With protectionism on the rise – as well as worldwide population growth, economic inequality and climate change threats – it has never been more important for the world’s public and private sector leaders to uncover common goals and engage in economic diplomacy to promote continued globalization, innovation and competition. This one-of-a-kind forum will move beyond analysis and provide participants with the chance to shape the next stage of the global economy.

Mike Bloomberg said: “The Forum comes at a critical time as tensions around tariffs create economic uncertainty in many industries. We’ll bring together business and government leaders to focus on increasing trade and investment, and work together on other shared challenges. The dialogue at the Forum will be a powerful counterweight to talk of trade wars and will help spur new investment and growth around the world.”
