The Future Investment Initiative Institute will host this month the fourth edition of FII; a multi-hub conference that will bring together leaders; investors; and policymakers as they re-imagine the global economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The FII Institute, a newly established non-profit global foundation, will host the conference on Jan. 27-28 at the King Abdul Aziz International Conference Center (KAICC) in Riyadh; with speakers and audiences joining physically and virtually from FII satellites in New York, Paris, Beijing, and Mumbai. The FII Institute will act as the curator of a global conversation that is needed to spark concrete actions. Besides, mobilizing cross-border thought leadership, collaboration, and resources.

More important time

“There has never been a more important time for leaders; investors; and policymakers to come together to work towards re-energizing the global economy,” Yasir Al-Rumayyan, Chairman of the FII Institute and Governor of the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia (PIF), said.

The FII Institute also identified sustainable investment; global economic growth; and the future of healthcare; digitization; education; and culture as priority topics which concern our communities.

Sessions will also address the rebirth of SMEs; and how investing in culture can make it an engine of growth to support artists and museums and rectify long-standing gender inequalities.

FII will also address how the sports and entertainment industries can reinvent themselves by combining virtual events and in-person experiences to grow revenue.

“The 4th edition of FII will see the most innovative technologies to facilitate global conversations. And to be inclusive at the benefit of all of humanity,” Richard Attias, CEO of the FII Institute, also said.

“The FII Institute will also act as a catalyst and a pioneer to allow interaction and exchange of disruptive ideas. There has never been a more important time to bring the greatest minds together to harness this opportunity to re-imagine our world.”

The institute was founded in Riyadh to bring together global leaders, tech pioneers, experts, and policymakers to enable concrete ideas that can solve today’s most pressing societal issues while creating long-term platforms to reshape the future of humanity sustainably.

The FII Institute will also play a leading role in shaping a much-needed debate about how to respond to crises; like the Covid-19 pandemic that has disrupted every part of the globe and every part of life.
