            First launched in October 2000, WKF serves as a platform to educate about pressing global issues and seek ways to promote a balanced world economic growth.

The central theme of this year's forum is Global Challenges: Geopolitical Conflicts and Trade War. Event delegates will gain insights on the interesting developments of the diplomatic relations in the Korean Peninsula; how the blockchain technology is disrupting the existing monetary system; and ways to improve the quality of life beyond wealth and technology. The WKF is not complete without its prominent speakers and this year welcomes around 200 of them, including former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, founder of Crypto Exchange Miko Matsumura, Nobel Peace Prize Winner Kawasaki Akira, and the President of the Republic of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid.
