Chairperson's remarks

Dr. Frannie Leautier

Chairperson, GEIF 2023
Former Vice President, World Bank

What if, with all our common goals of creating a safe, secure, and shared economic prosperity, we put humanity at the center of it?

Is it possible, that, at a point, world leaders, economists, scientists, innovators, researchers, and disruptors, converge on a single platform to engineer people-led growth?

I am optimistic that this is possible. On behalf of the Institute of Certified Chartered Economists, ICCE, I welcome you to the 2nd Global Economic Ideas Festival (GEIF 2023).

The festival will bring together world leaders, including top economists, leading researchers, ministers of state, private sector business leaders, central bank representatives from civil society organizations, academics, and thought leaders, to drive conversations on how to shape the world economy.
