UNCTAD World Investment Forum 2018                                      

The bi-annual World Investment Forum, which will be held from October 22-26, 2018 at the Palais des Nations – United Nations Headquarters in Geneva, is the top global gathering of trade and investment policy makers and their stakeholders. 

Why Should You Attend This Session at the World Investment Forum?

Blockchains for Sustainable Development will be one of the very few blockchain-focused events this year that will have heads of state and senior government officials from around the world attending. Many of the world’s top companies working to apply these technologies to the functions of government, the economy and trade will be attending. Unlike other blockchain conferences which are focused on the choir of those in favour, this session will take a broader perspective on the implications of these technologies, in the presence of those who will shape this sector as political leaders, regulators, public service providers, investors and philanthropists. This is therefore an unprecedented opportunity to focus knowledge gathering and networking for real progress. And, unlike others, this session is free to attend.
