Despite recent progress in addressing California's budget imbalances, persistent challenges related to human capital, infrastructure, water and taxes threaten to impede economic growth. To help establish a roadmap to meet them and to ensure economic growth and investment, the Milken Institute's 2016 California Summit will assemble leaders in business, government, academia and philanthropy for wide-ranging discussions about the state's future. Our goal is to make sure California's economy remains vibrant and the state continues to be a nexus of business and innovation.
The Milken Institute's third Asia Summit will convene high-profile executives, influential investors, heads of sovereign wealth funds and philanthropists from around the world. This year’s program will address the 'Forces Shaping Asia's pressing global and regional challenges, geopolitical risks, financial regulation, technology trends, demographic change, and the role of philanthropy. The Summit will provide participants with unparalleled insights and an actionable framework to effectively deal with the challenges and opportunities facing Asia.
This invitation-only Summit will be a first-of-its-kind gathering of decision-makers, including leaders of global health organizations, deans of schools of public health, industry CEOs, members of the U.S. Congress and Administration, scientists, physicians, philanthropists, NGO leaders, and representatives from governments worldwide.
