Shanghai Forum, launched in 2005, is known as one of the most famous international forums held in Shanghai. Co-hosted by Fudan University and Korea Foundation for Advanced Studies, undertaken by Fudan Development Institute (FDDI), the Forum is a non-governmental and non-profit academic organization which holds an annual symposium each May in Shanghai. Shanghai Forum takes its mission to “Concentrate on Asia, Focus on Hot Issues, Congregate Elites, Promote Interactions, Enhance Cooperation and Seek Consensus”. During 2005 to 2017, the main theme of the Forum was “Economic Globalization and the Choice of Asia”. The world situation and Asia’s influence has changed a lot in recent years. To keep pace with the times, the organizing committee decided to adjust the main theme into “Global Governance and Asia”. It endeavors to build an interactive platform for multisided communication amongst academic, political, commercial, and press circles. Significant problems in Asia and the world will be discussed comprehensively and profoundly in fields like global governance, social security, environmental governance, economy & finance, scientific and technological innovation.
