Forum 2015 Issues


Investment is essential to place economies on sustainable growth paths while addressing inequalities, fostering innovation, helping the transition towards low-carbon economies and financing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Unemployment increases the risk of poverty, ill health as well as the levels of inequality within our societies. It undermines the confidence and trust of citizens in governments, markets, businesses and institutions at large.
