As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

An #ACFrontPage event

Atlantic Council Front Page is our premier live ideas platform for global leaders to discuss the defining challenges of our time.

Atlantic Council Front Page is a new virtual event series featuring top newsmakers across multiple digital platforms. Harnessing the convening power and expertise of the Council’s thirteen programs and centers, #ACFrontPage leverages the Council’s capabilities in social media, press, and digital outreach to spotlight the world’s most prominent leaders and the most compelling ideas across sectors and engage new audiences eager for nonpartisan and constructive solutions to current global challenges. This widely promoted program features the Council’s most important guests and content serving as the highlight of our programming each week.

Everyone wants to know what comes next for the U.S. and world economies.

Join the Atlantic Council #ACFrontPage next Thursday for a conversation that will provide all that – with historic context and a dose of humor – with one of the world’s keenest and most influential voices, David Rubenstein. At this perilous moment, we ask this private equity pioneer, student of history, master analyst and legendary philanthropist for his take on where America and the world are headed this year and beyond. Frederick Kempe, Atlantic Council president and CEO and former Wall Street Journal reporter and editor, as moderator will turn the table on this master interviewer. And before it’s over, Rubenstein promises to turn the table on Kempe.

The Atlantic Council’s Global Business and Economics Program is pleased to present this live show as part of their mission to inform and influence the response to the economic crisis. From publishing a new G20 COVID-19 fiscal firepower heat map crises to gathering the leaders of our financial world, the Atlantic Council is combining foreign policy, economic, and business expertise to help re-imagine the post COVID-19 world.

Please join us on Thursday, May 14, 2020 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. (EDT) via Zoom. In order to participate in the call, please register using the button above. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information on how to join
