Qatar continues preparations to host the third economic forum


Qatar continued its preparations to host the third annual Qatar Economic Forum – with the support of Bloomberg – which will be held from May 23 to 25, where world economists, politicians and global decision-makers will meet. A number of heads of state and global CEOs will participate in this year’s third edition. One of the most influential companies in the world, major global investors, and a number of influential voices from the worlds of culture, sports and entertainment.
This year, the forum will discuss a number of global issues that dominate the global economy, foremost of which are energy transition and security: meeting demand in a volatile world, and preparing for the future: developing emerging technology to maximize innovation.
The forum will also discuss Emerging Markets: The Story of Uneven Recovery and Future Growth.. Navigating Uncertainty: The Impact of the Global Market on Health Innovation
Scaling Up Climate Finance: Overcoming Barriers to Green Growth, Reorienting Trade Strategies and Regulations, Auditing the Future of the Industry Workforce, and Digitalizing Sport.
The forum also reviews the future of foreign direct investment in difficult economic times.
Powered by Bloomberg, the Qatar Economic Forum is the Middle East’s leading voice on global business, trade and investment. Through its focus on the main economic issues facing heads of state and international CEOs of global companies and financial markets.
Powered by Bloomberg, the Qatar Economic Forum provides fresh and unique perspectives on the issues driving the world.
The Forum rises to the challenge and offers new perspectives on key issues facing the global economy. By highlighting both established perspectives and emerging voices, the Forum also identifies business innovations and policy solutions that will build economic momentum and create a new global growth story.
The forum stressed on its website that the global economy is facing unique uncertainties, as the reopening of China is set to provide a welcome boost to global growth, offsetting weakness in Europe and the risk of a persistent recession in the United States. But the post-Covid China pivot could bring inflationary pressures at the very moment the US Federal Reserve and other central banks re-establish control.
In the Gulf, Qatar and its neighbors are seizing opportunities, as the region’s sovereign wealth funds, flush with oil and gas revenues from the energy crisis, compete to fill the $3 trillion liquidity gap left by Wall Street’s decline.
With the reorientation of global supply lines and the shift of the center of global growth to the east, the Gulf region is increasing the pace of reforms and opening up to face the world.
Against this backdrop, the third Qatar Economic Forum highlights the rising economy from south to south and the new growth opportunities it presents to the global business community. By promoting established viewpoints and emerging voices from around the world.

Major issues
The forum will discuss a range of global and regional issues and their impact on the world, with a focus on the Middle East region, foremost of which is global trade, globalization, sustainability transformations, environmental, social and institutional governance, and investment and business in the sports sector.
Other issues are at the forefront of the forum, the most important of which is global food security, the future of tourism in light of the Corona unrest, and supply and retail chains.
Bloomberg Group confirmed that Doha’s strategic location enhances Qatar’s ability to connect Asia with Africa and beyond, as well as its position as a major global diplomatic center, a pioneer in liquefied natural gas energy technologies, and the home of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

New global growth
The group adds: After a tough economic winter, we’ve emerged into an even tougher world. The global growth environment has permanently shifted in the wake of the ongoing Russian war in Ukraine and China’s ongoing obsession with Covid Zero — even as everyone tries to stay away from the pandemic.
The group explained that high inflation, fueled by rising energy and food prices and continuing supply chain challenges, weighs heavily on companies, exacerbating income inequality, with the US Federal Reserve and other central banks raising interest rates hurting emerging and developed markets. Both.
Bloomberg Group adds: To create a new road map for global growth in this challenging economic environment, business and policy leaders must solve one of the most pressing economic problems of our time: inflation.
How can we bring down inflation without causing a deep and prolonged recession while simultaneously boosting long-term productivity, economic growth, and worker salaries?
And as markets shift their attention from the impact of Covid-19 to inflation, global markets look more fragile than ever. Supply chains continue to falter, Russia’s attack on Ukraine continues to put pressure on commodity markets, global trade appears to be slowing, and the US Federal Reserve’s rate hikes could mean a slump for emerging markets.
A full global economic recovery could take years. If managed incorrectly, the economic recovery could drive a wedge between East and West, developed and emerging markets, giant corporations and smaller competitors, and high- and low-skilled workers — creating dangerous fault lines across society.
