On 26 January, hear leading UN experts on the global economy examine topics including the latest economic forecasts, how cryptocurrencies can be used to help people and what investors can do to better align investments with global sustainability goals.
As the world continues to grapple with the financial impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, UN DESA brings together a panel of experts from government, business and academia to discuss The Future of Money, homing in on monetary policy in 2022. The event will take place on 26 January from 8:30 am to 10 am EST.
Speakers will discuss how Central Banks will approach the recovery from the pandemic, how innovations in digital currencies such as bitcoin can help more people achieve financial security, and how countries, local governments, civil society and other stakeholders are approaching sustainable investing.
The event follows on the heels of the release of UN DESA’s latest flagship publication, the World Economic Situation and Prospects 2022, and recent policy briefs and the wider work of the UN toward recovering better after the pandemic.
The session is free and open to all, and will be streamed live on UN DESA’s Facebook page. It will be held in English with captions available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, and translation into American Sign Language. The event is made possible by the United Nations Peace and Development Trust Fund.
