The Institute of Certified Chartered Economists (ICCE) has launched a new global award to recognize and celebrate young economists around the world.
The award is dubbed the 30 Most Influential Young Economists.
The ICCE is a professional body for economists with a shared common vision of raising economics professionals through the Chartered Economist program.
The Institute is dedicated to equipping economics professionals with the needed skill sets, expertise, and qualifications that help them to rise to the top of their chosen career paths, and thus, shape the future of their industries.
The first edition of the 30 Most Influential Young Economists Awards will be in 2022, and thereafter, the list will be announced each year.
According to the ICCE;
“This is the most-anticipated annual compilation of young, bold, and brightest economists who are under the age of 40 years old across multiple regions.”
“This initiative is aimed at celebrating new economic thinkers and rising economists who are influencing positive change across their country’s economy.”
"This will highlight the audacious, true, and genuine potential of young economists whose works are commensurate with their impacts, while also serving as a source of inspiration for other young people whose commitment to stimulating growth is undeniable."
