This year, the forum is titled "The Ever-Changing World: Reshaping Our Shared Future".

The IFF said in an event announcement on Monday as the world now faces enormous challenges with countries scrambling to fight runaway inflation amid energy and food crises, and China's economy disrupted by sporadic COVID-19 outbreaks, this year's meeting will bring together world leaders, executives of global leading financial institutions and enterprises as well as academics and think tanks to discuss major global issues and challenges.

Guests participating in the forum virtually include António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund and Co-chairman of the IFF, Xie Zhenhua, China's Special Representative for Climate Change Affairs and Jin Liqun, President of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. Henry Paulson, Founder and Chairman of the Paulson Institute, and Mark Tucker, Chairman of HSBC, will also speak at the three-day conference as guests.

The forum will focus on areas such as the global economic outlook, debt risk and prevention, climate investment and carbon pricing, global value and supply chains, sustainable development, the Belt and Road Initiative as well as the growth of the Greater Bay Area.

The IFF will release the Global Finance and Development Report, its annual report on the global economy as well as China's economic outlook in 2023. During the three-day conference, the IFF will unveil winners of its Green Finance Award to reward financial institutions and enterprises for their efforts in mitigating climate change.
