DIALOGUE OF CONTINENTS

THE NEW AGE OF PROGRESS

October 29-30, 2019

Program2018 Edition

Organizers

Dialogue of Continents is a forum hosted by the Hamburg Institute of International Economics and the Reinventing Bretton Woods Committee. It is designed to engage top public and private sector actors in an in-depth and open-minded debate carried out in an intimate atmosphere designed that provide many possibilities for one-on-one encounters.

Last year during Dialogue of Continents we examined the forces that are pulling apart nations, economies and societies and we discussed the likelihood of avoiding further drifts.

In this year’s edition, we have examined ongoing tensions and divergences across the globe and we have pondered whether these difficulties can be addressed to create a path towards a new age of progress.
