This exclusive debate takes place in Istanbul, where the World Bank is holding its annual set of meetings. A panel of business and political leaders join FRANCE 24's Raphael Kahane to discuss how the economic crisis will change the world.

FRANCE 24 and the World Bank have brought together a panel of decision-makers who try to imagine what the world will look like after the crisis.

But this new generation of investors, innovators and political leaders is also facing great challenges. What are these challenges and how will they be addressed?

Eleni Gabre-Mahdin, CEO of the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange

Mahmoud Mohieldin, Minister of Investment, Egypt
