The Emerging Markets Forum was created as a not-for-profit initiative to bring together high-level government and corporate leaders from around the world to engage in dialogue on the key economic, financial and social issues facing emerging market countries.
The EMF hosts one global meeting and several regional meetings every year. Each meeting is structured around issues that are common to the emerging market economies. The EMF commissions policy experts to write background papers, which provide a starting point for discussion. Participants come from the absolute highest levels of the private and public sectors to engage in open dialogue and implement solutions.
The co-Chairmen of the Forum are Michel Camdessus, former Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, Haruhiko Kuroda, President of the Asian Development Bank, and Fidel V. Ramos, former President of the Philippines.
The last Global Meeting of the Emerging Markets Forum was held Sep. 25-27, 2011 at the Airlie Center outside Washington, DC. Click here for the agenda to our 2011 Global Meeting of the Emerging Markets Forum.
