The Year Ahead

For global CEOs, 2019 will see their investment opportunities defined by the ongoing tectonic shifts in the global economy. With Japan set to be at the center of these developments, Bloomberg’s The Year Ahead will come to Tokyo for the first time this December.

What’s next. Right now.

For global CEOs, 2019 will see their investment opportunities defined by the ongoing tectonic shifts in the global economy. From Donald Trump’s America First trade policy, to China asserting itself more on the global stage, and the disruption created by the expanding deployment of A.I., the issues to consider are myriad.

With Japan set to be at the center of these developments, Bloomberg’s The Year Ahead will come to Tokyo for the first time this December. Join us for this globally focused summit, as market-moving CEOs from across the world help shape the conversation around the most important trends and challenges facing every executive in the year ahead.
