Jan du Plessis, Chairman, Rio Tinto
Chair: Stuart Popham, Vice Chairman, EMEA Banking, Citigroup; Chairman designate, Chatham House


Jan du Plessis will discuss the role of big business in today’s economy and how a climate of mistrust is damaging not just to companies themselves but to society as a whole. Mr du Plessis will argue that the potential of global companies to contribute to economic development, poverty reduction and prosperity must not be overlooked for fear of missing further opportunities for economic growth. He will discuss how there needs to be an evolution in thinking and action to encourage businesses, society and governments to work together to restore trust and confidence.

This event will be followed by a reception at 19:30.
