By Conrad Egusa February 28, 2019

The distinguished international organization Horasis, which promotes globalization through establishing economic and political connections, has announced that it will kick off its 4th Global Meeting this April in Cascais, Portugal.

At the four-day conference, startups will meet with world leaders to discuss key issues in economic inequality and the day’s persisting social dilemmas. Topics will include sustainable development; populism; climate change; cryptocurrency; the next financial crisis; immersive technologies; diversity in the workplace; the fourth industrial revolution; the post-truth era; halting sexual harassment; modeling sustainable migration; and blockchain.

Launched in 2016, the conference is one of the world’s foremost discussion forums on topics related to globalization in the workplace.

Though Horasis was just recently founded in 2005 by Frank-Jürgen Richter of Switzerland, this is already the fourth annual Global Meeting summit that the organization will host.

“Horasis was founded on the principle that tackling the world’s most pressing economic, social, and political issues necessitates productive dialogue and collective collaboration,” said Frank-Jürgen Richter.

“Gathering key leaders and entrepreneurs at this especially pivotal moment for global politics and trade, we are both thrilled and determined to form actionable plans for sustainable growth and a more morally decent form of globalization.”

On the docket for this year include a list of the world’s most prominent leaders. Among the political leaders to attend will be António Costa, Prime Minister of Portugal, Armen Sarkissian, President of Armenia, Hage G. Geingob, President of Namibia, Ilir Meta, President of Albania, and Tudor Ulianovschi, Moldova’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Business leaders speaking include Steve Killelea, Founder & Executive Chairman, Institute for Economics & Peace, among others.
