Chairman Dr. Frank-Jürgen Richter, a former director at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, founded the organization behind the conference in 2005.

“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 Dr. Richter.

As someone who advises world leaders in business, politics, and academia, Dr. Richter spends 80% of the year traveling the world, creating long-term relationships with global policymakers that have the power and influence to transform society.

Before the Horasis flagship event in 2018, Dr. Richter told The Sociable what he thought of the media comparing the WEF with Horasis.

On where he wanted to see Horasis in the next five years, he added, “We want to become the foremost gathering of global business leaders and eminent government leaders.

“We would like to create impact – not through revolution (though sometimes an idea might do just that) but by discussions that educate and which also draw together former opponents. The world has too many active conflict zones – these we can’t halt.

“We have a great opportunity through our active network of government leaders, thought leaders in industry, commerce, and in the religious establishment to bend ears and attitudes.

“It is a slow process but I believe we can prevail and help to develop a richer, more socially aware and peaceful society.”

The 2019 Horasis China Meeting is co-hosted by the China Federation of Industrial Economics, Las Vegas Sands Corp. and the US Chamber of Commerce. Co-organizers includes the Center for China & Globalization, CCPIT, IE Business School and US-China Business Council.
