The World Ahead 2024

We conclude another vibrant year of EICN events with our classic event, The World Ahead, now in its 38th edition of editorial success. This time, the keynote presentation will be delivered by Rachel Morarjee, EICN’s Senior Network Advisor, and EICN Beijing’s former Network Director, who will cover a range of critical subjects with tremendous impact on Korea and the region. These include the ongoing stalemate in eastern Ukraine, the aftermath of a year marked by high interest rates, lower than expected growth, and China’s increasingly assertive presence in Asia — Rachel’s strongest area of expertise.

The event, our last for 2023, will feature a lavish dinner and drinks, and, as always, the highest quality of corporate networking in Seoul.
