2022 Online International Symposium
Mr. Muhammad Yunus Selected as Keynote Speaker
General Incorporated Association Construction Project Delivery System Council
Environmental Future Forum
General Incorporated Association PPP Promotion Support Organization
Following Jacques Attali in 2020 and Professor Michael Sandel in 2021, this year we will invite Muhammad Yunus as a guest speaker and hold an online international symposium co-hosted by three companies on December 15th.
Dr. Yunus, who founded Grameen Bank to solve social issues through microfinance, will take the stage as the main speaker in light of the post-corona society, the climate crisis such as global warming, and the world situation in turmoil following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
In addition to the 30-minute keynote speech, we plan to hold a panel discussion with experts from related fields in the second half. All past symposiums have been supported by the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, etc., and we have received 4,200 participants in 2020 and 3,300 in 2021.
Details such as panelists will be announced as soon as they are decided. The date and time is December 15th (Thursday) from 19:00 to 90 minutes. Please plan to attend.
Thank you very much.
