On September 12, Michael R. Bloomberg announced 50 heads of state from six continents have already committed to attend the second annual Bloomberg Global Business Forum (GBF), making it one of the most-attended events by heads of government in 2018. They will join over 250 of the world’s most prominent business leaders to strengthen economic prosperity and collaborate on trade issues, globalization, innovation, and competition. If the companies represented at the Global Business Forum were a country, its economy would be the third largest in the world. Supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Global Business Forum will take place in New York City on September 26th at the Plaza Hotel alongside the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly.
A Global Call for Climate Progress will be the focus of a One Planet Summit in the afternoon, hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron, U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres, World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim and Bloomberg himself.
