Emerging markets – full of promise or plagued with problems? At various points in history, they have been both. We bring together regional policy makers and global corporations to set a roadmap for developing nations to modernize their economy and market infrastructure.
Investors have poured money into emerging markets over the last decade but recent anxiety could prompt funds to flow the other way. Bloomberg’s Modern Markets conference, held against the backdrop of the IMF-World Bank summit in Bali on October 11, 2018, brings together the biggest names in global business to discuss where the best returns can be found in the world. Join us for an afternoon of candid conversations that centre on the ways developing nations can modernize their economy and market infrastructure. We look at how policy, corporates, and technological innovation must come together to create the world’s best markets that investors simply cannot ignore.
