The Forum is guided by a Board of Trustees, outstanding persons from business, politics, academia and civil society who act as guardians of its mission, its values and oversee work in promoting true global citizenship. In their work on the Board, members do not represent any personal or professional interests. In order to reflect the Board’s multi-stakeholder status, its membership is divided equally between representatives of the business community and leaders from international organizations and civil society.
The Managing Board has a collective executive responsibility for the EurAsia Forum and reports to the Board of Trustees. The Board ensures that activities fulfil the mission of the Forum and acts as its representative to outside parties. The Board leadership and staff of the EurAsia-Forum comprise exceptional individuals from many nationalities and different industries.
The Forum’s activities are managed by its executive committee headed by Founder and Executive Chairman Irene ZHU (Ailian ZHU ), and is supported by the Forum’s Secretary General Robert J. Mojzes who is also responsible for PR and media relations.
