Concept Paper

Since the inception of KMF, themes have been discussed ranging from a new context where uncertainty is normality to whether or not good stewardship based on the political economy of location, environment, and demographics can overcome geography as destiny; to the juxtaposition between Artificial Intelligence and Human Intelligence; to building our Collective Brain and, most recently, to how we can ‘Craft Our Collective Narrative’ to achieve more inclusive development outcomes for markets, firms, economies and, most importantly, societies.

The KMF2022 theme is: ‘Development and its Complexities: Steering Our Way Through a Perfect Storm’. In upholding KMF traditions, panel discussions will continue to be organised along four core sessions: how various markets globally are affected; what the theme means to firms, and society at large; what are the imperatives of leadership and people.
