Horasis, the global visions community, today announced the Horasis Extraordinary Meeting on the United States of America to be held virtually on March 18, 2021. The Horasis community of nearly one thousand selected world leaders, including heads of state, government ministers and captains of industry, will meet online to debate measures to “rebuild trust” in the United States and the rest of the world, and create actionable plans for a post-pandemic future.
Founded in 2005 by Dr. Frank-Jürgen Richter, Horasis is one of the world’s foremost gatherings of business leaders who interact with key government officials and eminent thought leaders. Regular meetings are held throughout the year to help advance solutions to the most critical challenges facing businesses, governments, and societies.
As America moves into the new administration of President Joseph R. Biden, the world looks on with cautious enthusiasm at how the US will provide leadership in a new, multilateral world. The Horasis Extraordinary Meeting is a forum where senior members from the Horasis Visions Community can interact with incoming government leaders and corporate executives to help support and shape a roadmap that can help lead the world out of crisis.
The time is now for leaders to come together and rebuild trust in our multilateral institutions to help deliver societies from the depths of economic depravity and create a more just, equitable and sustainable future for everyone
“The world is facing challenges not seen in generations,” said Horasis Chairman Frank-Jürgen Richter. “The time is now for leaders to come together and rebuild trust in our multilateral institutions to help deliver societies from the depths of economic depravity and create a more just, equitable and sustainable future for everyone.”
