The New World Forum

The New World Forum emerged onto the international stage as a significant political, economic, and financial annual meeting. It gathers political, economic, and corporate leaders to openly and honestly debate the fundamental issues that define the realities of those who govern, during two days at the OECD Headquarters in Paris.


For its 7th edition, the New Word Forum was held at the OECD Headquarters in Paris on November 9-10, 2015.


“The urgency of long term”


For this 7th Edition, we chose to start by exploring the long term. This complex exercise is not of an academic nature since, in order to explore the New World, we must project ourselves beyond the current economic climate and upheavals. Are we, as stated by some economists, in the heart of a secular stagnation? We also need to wonder about the deep economic, geopolitical, technological and societal transformations we are witnessing today. What are their implications on the long term?


Strategic council

The mandate of the Strategic Council, chaired by Jean-Paul Fitoussi, is to identify and put forward the main themes and focus points of the programme of the Annual Meeting of the New World Forum.
