THE CITY AS A GLOBAL GROWTH ENGINE

09:45-11:00 Pavilion 5, Conference Hall 5.1
In the next 50–70 years, the world will need to build more urban areas than it has in the entire history of humanity. Managing the risk as well as capitalizing upon this huge population shift into cities will define the success of many economies. What needs to be done to manage this successfully? How might this drive growth and innovation?

Highlights

The historic city centres should not become museums, they should remain vibrant cities.

Nicole Bricq
Minister for Foreign Trade of France

More and more, it is not really competition between countries, it is really competition on the level of how effective your cities are.

David Gray
Managing Partner, PwC Russia

Cities should not be afraid to “steal”, meaning to take the best ideas from other cities.

Edward Skyler
Executive Vice-President, Citi

One of the most important things we did to create economic growth was to focus on innovation and creativity.

Ron Huldai
Mayor of Tel-Aviv

There's no real sense it developing transport routes around Moscow and St Petersburg. They should be built directly from the Baltic Sea ... connecting the Volga region, Siberia and the Urals with better road capacity. In turn, these routes will be centres of economic growth.

Leonid Kazinets
Chairman of the Board of Directors and Founder, Barkli Corporation

It is important to have a comprehensive vision of a number of aspects that are crucial to a city: the transportation system, the development of the suburbs, urbanism, housing, and, obviously, services.

Nicole Bricq
Minister for Foreign Trade of France
