The first forum, "Engineering the Resilient Economy", takes place at the Biltmore Hotel today and tomorrow. Chris was the moderator of a panel of international banking leaders during the inaugural plenary session, where panel members analyzed the current standing of the global economy in effort to draw a comprehensive portrait of its challenges today and opportunities for tomorrow. Topics discussed included:

  • Risks that threaten sustainable economic recoveries

Speakers included:

  • Willem Buiter, Global Chief Economist, Citi (United States)
  • Herman Daems, Chairman, BNP Paribas Fortis (Belgium)
  • Luis Robles Miaja, Chairman, Grupo Financiero BBVA Bancomer; President, Asociación de Bancos de México (Mexico)
  • Justin Chinyanta, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, The Loita Group; Executive Vice-President, Africa Business Roundtable (South Africa)
  • Warren Jestin, Senior Vice-President and Chief Economist, Scotiabank (Canada)

"I was honored to moderate the discussion among these world-class bankers and economists who graciously outlined their outlook on the global economy and regional investment prospects," said Chris. "It was a very special moment for me as one of the panel members, Dr. Warren Jestin, Chief Economist at the Bank of Nova Scotia and a renowned expert on the Americas has been a long-term mentor of mine.

"Given GardaWorld's international presence and scope of business activities and the diverse interest of the global audience at the World Strategic Forum, the perspectives shared were immensely valuable to all," he added.

Following this forum, Chris will participate in "Building a Balanced Economy" which will be held in Montreal, Canada on June 8th - 11th and "Creating Opportunities in a Connected World" in Toronto, Canada July 8th - 10th.
