Commenting on the announcement, Ajay Banga, President & CEO, Mastercard Incorporated and member of the FII 2018 advisory board, said: “Every day, businesses and governments explore how technology and partnerships can drive new innovation and new opportunities to benefit people economically and socially. The Future Investment Initiative has proven to be an important venue to bring together leaders to discuss the needs of our shared future. It’s events like this that sparks real action.”  
 
Victor Chu, Chairman & CEO, First Eastern Investment Group and member of the FII 2018 advisory board also commented: “The 2017 edition of the Future Investment Initiative was a great success in helping bridge the gap between East and West. It brought together thought and business leaders from around the world to share their views on current and future global issues. This is now an unmissable event for those wishing to have a better understanding of our rapidly globalizing world.”
 
Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global and member of the FII 2018 advisory board said: 'Last year's inaugural Future Investment Initiative made it clear that this is an essential stop on the global business calendar, particularly for anyone interested in a truly international perspective on innovations and forward thinking from all parts of the world. Since then, the pace of change has only accelerated, making an even stronger case for how vital this unique gathering of leaders is for advancing our human potential. And I'm very much looking forward to working with the FII 2018 team to shape an agenda that not only showcases the best emerging ideas but helps us take meaningful action on a global scale.”  
 
The programme for FII 2018 will include:
  • Expert-led debates and discussions to explore the world’s most important economic trends;
