12th Annual Meridian Global Leadership Summit: Global Cooperation in an Era of Strategic Economic Competition

Global Cooperation in an Era of Strategic Economic Competition

Friday, October 20, 2023 | 9:00 A.M. - 12:30 P.M.
The Gallup Building (901 F St. NW, Washington, DC 20004) | Livestreamed for a global audience


As nations across the world simultaneously grapple with repercussions from the War in Ukraine, the aftermath of COVID-19, and the effects of climate change, they seek mutually beneficial economic partnerships that will develop their infrastructure, capitalize on the digital transformation, grow their industries of the future and provide jobs to their young work forces. Governments that modernize their development systems, while increasing their private sector investment allow partner countries to build more inclusive economies that empower their local communities, while also ensuring that transparent, accountable, and evidence-driven economic development is advanced around the world.

The 2023 Meridian Global Leadership Summit will explore the power and promise of economic diplomacy and public-private partnerships to foster international cooperation in an era of strategic economic competition and technological advancement during the global energy transition. Modernized development aid and financing, innovation of investment incentives, de-risking of supply chains, greater regionalization, and industrial policy will be among the examined themes.

On Friday, October 20th 2023, diplomatic, business and policy leaders will come together at The Gallup Building in Washington, DC, or join virtually with a global audience. Concurrent sessions on two stages alongside networking breaks and exhibits will allow participants to tailor their experience.
