The International Finance Forum (IFF) is an independent, non-profit and non-governmental international organization, founded in Beijing in October 2003 under the initiation of over 20 primary international organizations such as the U.N., and a substantial number of financial institutions and leaders. As a longstanding high-level dialogue holder, research institute, strategic and diplomatic financial platform, and the leading think tank of China and other emerging economies, the IFF has been playing the full role of non-official G-20, therefore, been reviewed as the world’s "F-20".
As an independent international think tank, the International Finance Forum (IFF) has been in existence for more than a decade, during which, it not only witnessed the significant turbulences and changes in the world economy and financial market, but also gradually grew into an influential international academic organization. Against the current backdrop of economic recovery and financial restructuring, the IFF is honored to provide a valuable platform for dialogue among the economic and financial leaders across the world as well as make contributions to the global economic recovery and revitalization.
The world today is facing a revolution. It is imperative to construct a new global financial framework and to formulate new rules for global financial market. The new global framework, new global rules, global balance and global governance require us to engage in renewed strategic dialogue and thinking. The changes and impacts of new global rules concern every country. The IFF aims to further explore these changes and impacts through a more extensive dialogue and cooperation mechanism, and thus provides forward-looking ideas and possible paths for future global economy and finance.
