NEW YORK, July 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


Richard Attias, Founder and Chairman of the New York Forum, has announced that next year's conference will run on June 11-12, 2012 in New York City.

Attias explained: "This year's conference addressed the issue of jobs, which I believe is the single biggest challenge facing corporations and governments today. I dearly hope that some of the ideas and solutions that came out of this year will be implemented before next year's Forum, so we can learn from their success."

The findings from this year's conference were presented to the current G20 presidency. 

During this year's conference, the White House convened a meeting of the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, with Valerie Jarrett, a Senior Advisor to President Obama, joining Steve Case, founder of AOL; Brian Roberts, Chairman and CEO, Comcast; Laura Tyson, SK and Angela Chan Chair in Global Management, Haas School of Business, University of California Berkeley; and Robert Wolf, Chairman, UBS Americas, in discussion. 

The New York Forum 2012 will look at the most pressing issues facing the economy and will give a voice to present and future leaders from emerging market countries, as well as a group of young entrepreneurs selected from key markets around the world.

The New York Forum strives to unite pioneering individuals from diverse fields and backgrounds for two days annually in New York to work together to craft solutions to the greatest challenges in the global economy.
