The Emerging Times Dinners

The narrative of today’s historic global transformation is flawed and inadequate in large part because it is monopolized de facto by the West.

This limits the West’s – and the rest of the world’s – ability to fully grasp the consequences of the major paradigm shift already at hand: nations formerly considered as the periphery are becoming the center.

Launched during the 2013 annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, the Emerging Times Dinners gather VIPs from politics, business, media, academia and culture around global contemporary icons giving both a face and a voice to the rising stars of so-called emerging countries.Additional Emerging Times Dinners were held throughout 2013, welcoming each time a leading opinion-maker from an emerging country such as ChatibBasri, Head of the Indonesian Board of Investment; Anwar Ibrahim, leader of the Malaysian opposition; and Tony Fernandes, CEO of AirAsia .
