This year’s Forum in Seoul from 14-17 October tackles the theme “Creating a New World Order and Economy”. Northeast Asia is currently a hot topic both politically and economically, and this year’s WKF includes an OECD plenary session on the theme “Northeast Asia at the Center of Dynamism”. The OECD and the WKF are knowledge partners in the WKF and the OECD’s annual Forum. Other sessions will cover issues such as trust in the new world order, the challenge of rebuilding North Korea, the role of the US economy, human capital, and how to encourage creativity.
