World Economic Forum USA

New YorkThe World Economic Forum USA is an independent non-profit organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging industry leaders in partnerships to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

Incorporated as a non-profit business league (under §501(c)6 of the IRS code - approval pending) and based in New York, the World Economic Forum USA is impartial and not-for-profit; it is tied to no political, partisan or national interests. It is the North American affiliate of the World Economic Forum, a non-profit Foundation based in Geneva, Switzerland, under the supervision of the Swiss Federal Government.

The World Economic Forum USA's New York offices will act as the global headquarters for the Centre for Global Industries, the group responsible for leading the World Economic Forum's industry activities.

With operations spanning the United States and Switzerland, the Centre for Global Industries will focus on developing the Industry Partnership programme, which is aimed at engaging global companies in the Forum's activities at the industry level. The Industry Partnership programme includes participation in the Forum's Industry Governors Meetings, contributing to an evolving portfolio of task forces (ongoing working groups focused on particular areas of interest) and actively participating in several modules (specific meetings of designated senior executives, such as Chief Strategy Officers). To date, more than 85 companies have formally joined the programme, including more than 45 from North America.
