Event Details

The Foreign Policy Association is proud to announce the 18th annual World Leadership Forum.

Hosted by the Foreign Policy Association and coinciding with the United Nations General Assembly, the World Leadership Forum is one of the foremost public forums on global affairs. Over the years, heads of government and state, executives, investors and policy makers, have participated to discuss and exchange views on global trends and issues that shape business and foreign policy agendas.

The Forum will be hosted in the morning of September 26th at PricewaterhouseCoopers (300 Madison Avenue, New York, NY).  The Luncheon, beginning at 12:30 p.m., will be hosted nearby at The Harvard Club of New York (35 W. 44th Street, New York, NY).    

This event will coincide with the Foreign Policy Association’s year-long Centennial Lecture Series, celebrating 100 years of commitment to fostering an educated public discourse on the most influential topics in U.S. foreign policy. The Foreign Policy Association’s Centennial Lecture Series features extraordinary speakers, who will take the long view and imagine the future in their respective disciplines. The importance of providing citizens with accessible, in-depth, non-partisan material is vital to future world peace and prosperity. In one of his final public addresses, President Franklin D. Roosevelt told the Foreign Policy Association that “In a democracy the Government functions with the consent of the whole people. The latter must be guided by the facts.” Now more than ever, this message continues to have resonance, and will remain the guiding principle and goal of the Foreign Policy Association.

The panels topics at this year's World Leadership Forum include:

  • Word From Wall Street

  • Global Economic Outlook

  • The Belt and Road Initiative 

  • Keynote Luncheon Panel (hosted at The Harvard Club of New York, 35 W 44th Street, New York, NY)
