Event Description

The Foreign Policy Association is proud to announce the 16th 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.

 

With the 2016 Presidential Election quickly approaching, this year’s World Leadership Forum promises to address the vital issues of American foreign policy that you need to know for November and beyond.
