RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Sept. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In one month’s time, the Future Investment Initiative (FII) Institute will host PRIORITY, a summit in New York City that will bring together people from all walks of life – leaders, policymakers, CEOs, students, volunteers, academics, athletes, investors, and more – to discuss the highest priority for each segment of society as the world goes through extraordinary social, economic and geopolitical changes.



The summit, which will take place on the sidelines of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, will provide a platform for discussion and dialogue aimed at finding solutions that will help leaders across the world to address the one priority for each group of people.

More than [40] prominent speakers will take part in the summit, including:

  • H.E. Yasir Al-Rumayyan, Chairman, FII Institute 
  • H.E. Helle Thorning-Schmidt,  Former Prime Minister, Denmark

Other panel discussions will seek to answer critical questions, such as what new regulations and/or organizations need to be formed to realize each priority? How can communities around the world learn to understand and support each other to achieve each priority? How can we help global political, economic, and cultural leaders to encourage them to focus on each priority?

Richard Attias, CEO of the FII Institute said, "As the world is witnessing a period of transformation and as a new global order starts to take shape, we believe it is crucial to understand the priorities of each demographic group around the world. Over the past two years, the world faced many challenges that have left an impact on all citizens across the globe. Therefore, our values and priorities have changed.

"FII Institute’s priority is to make a direct and positive impact on humanity through creating multiple initiatives across different domains. This is why we decided to host PRIORITY as an annual global conversation, to help us understand the wishes, hopes, and expectations of our fellow human beings. We are giving everyone a voice."

PRIORITY will serve as an essential building block for the sixth edition of the Future Investment Initiative, scheduled to be held in Riyadh from 25-27 October.

Earlier this year, the FII Institute held a summit in London about ESG in emerging markets where it announced its new Inclusive ESG™ Framework and Scoring Methodology, aimed at informing and accelerating ESG investments in emerging economies.
