Business, political leaders debate post-crisis world economy

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.

With the centre of gravity shifting away from the US and Europe, new economic centres are emerging and growing stronger by the day.

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?



FRANCE 24's Raphael Kahane moderates a debate between five panelists:

Eleni Gabre-Mahdin, CEO of the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange

Mahmoud Mohieldin, Minister of Investment, Egypt

Guillermo Ortiz, Central Bank Governor, Mexico

Paul Collier, Director at the Centre for the Study of African Economies, Oxford University

Robert Zoellick, President, World Bank
