HAVE WE REACHED «PEAK» GLOBALISATION?
Geneva, 17 October 2017
To stimulate and facilitate the exchange with International Organisations and the respective Diplomatic Representations in Geneva, ICC Switzerland continues its Geneva Business Dialogue with a series of high-ranking roundtables. The first of such discussions was on the future of globalisation with Prof. Carlos Braga as lead speaker.
The talk analysed what the recent trends in international trade, foreign direct investment, and technological innovation mean for the world economy. In particular, the presentation addressed to what extent the observed slow-down in some globalisation indicators (e.g., slow growth of international trade) can be explained by cyclical factors, or by changes in trade policies, or by geopolitical shocks (and economic uncertainty), or by structural developments such as the increased maturity of global value chains.
