Explore the meeting's themes

This year's meeting takes place under six key themes:

Sessions to watch

All times are local to China (GMT+8)

The digital economy offers significant potential for the region in particular for jobs, but challenges including language and communication and disparate standards remain.


AI offers significant opportunities, but in areas from governance, to access and energy consumption, there are challenges to be addressed and tackled.


Climate change is having a significant impact on global health. Vulnerable and underserved communities, women and children, are at significantly more risk.


Sectors as diverse as manufacturing to education and communications can all benefit from AI - but all face hurdles and challenges. Upskilling and reskilling are essential.


In the face of numerous global challenges, cooperation and effective policymaking on topics from climate change to artificial intelligence is essential. And, a reminder that hope matters and a call for a new model for prosperity.


With rising geopolitical tensions, the need for cooperation is increasingly pressing - but is also increasingly challenging. Participants called for renewed collaboration in areas from energy to AI.
