1: What Is The Global Business Dialogue?

That is a large, philosophical question with lots of practical answers. We will deal with the philosophical part here and answer the practical details in response to other questions. GBD was conceived as a business organization for the 21st Century and launched in the spring of 2000. It is a membership organization that exists to serve its members and others in the global business community.

At the heart of the global business community are the men and women around the world who produce the goods and services the world needs to thrive and grow. For GBD, the global business community also includes those law firms, scholars, and citizens who are involved with the global economy, the companies that make it up, and the politicians and other officials who craft and administer the laws, and regulations that frame and guide it.
