The Global Boardroom returns for its third edition to discuss the practical steps governments, business and finance can take to build a resilient, sustainable recovery, more than a year into a crisis that has crippled the global economy and fundamentally changed the way we live, work and communicate.
As COVID-19 continues to spread, how effective will the vaccination programmes be and to what extent have they brought forward the timing of a recovery? What impact will the new US administration have on domestic and global affairs? What should businesses do to assure future growth and competitiveness?
Join the FT’s top journalists in a series of live online conversations with leading policy-makers, CEOs and investors -- across three days and multiple time zones from Asia through to Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas -- to debate and design the most effective post-pandemic strategies.
Hear directly from leading policy-makers on the steps they are taking to support economies and business
Find out how leading CEOs from a range of industries are coping with the crisis and preparing for a recovery
Go beyond the news to explore the impact of the crisis through carefully curated, in-depth discussions
Pose questions to thought leaders and get instant analysis from FT journalists after key sessions
