The notion of growth encompasses an increasingly complex reality and is undergoing change. Such is not an expectation of what’s to come but already reality.
During the opening plenary session, prominent corporate leaders will provide us with their testimonials and visions.
The launch of this 9th annual World Forum will offer each participant the opportunity to demonstrate that “growth is indeed being rethought”.
1. What kind of growth will be better adapted to new attitudes and satisfy new aspirations?
2. New technologies, new growth: what are the economic and social impacts?
3. Which levers are available to overcome potential obstacles to this new growth?
4. Which «business models» will be best ?
