The World Ahead 2024

As we enter into 2024, we are delighted to invite EICN members to join us for the 38th edition of The World Ahead; The Economist’s future-gazing annual publication that is edited by Tom Standage, deputy editor of The Economist.

The World Ahead 2024 will consider the continuing geopolitical shifts caused by: the war in Ukraine; the new cold war between America and China; growing competition over the rules and resources that underpin the green-energy transition; and the consequences for countries, companies and citizens around the world as they grapple with economic uncertainty and rapid technological change. As countries accounting for more than half the world’s population go to the polls, what will influence voters?

Join us on 12th Dec as Tom presents his ten trends that will shape 2024. This event will be exclusively for members of the EICN in Singapore. There will be an opportunity to ask Tom questions during the live event.
