We are not yet in a global recession, but governments and businesses the world over are bracing against rising costs, wondering about the impact of higher interest rates, and worried about slower growth. As the war in Ukraine and pandemic disruptions continue to wreak havoc on supply chains, talk of stagflation abounds.
The picture is not entirely bleak, however. Unemployment levels across many economies are very low, some economies are set to grow fast, and there remain opportunities for innovation regionally and globally in areas like climate or digitalisation that can be drivers of corporate growth.
We will explore the factors contributing to a potential global recession - including interest rates, energy and commodity price volatility, supply shocks, geopolitics - and the factors that might save us from it. Changing growth drivers amid shifting supply chains, capital flows, and the role of China will also be on the agenda.
Join us for the Regional Strategic Forecast where Simon Baptist, our Chief Economist, and a panel of distinguished speakers from several business sectors, will consider how companies can cut through the noise about the challenges of this moment and constructively think about risk resilience and standing up to the next recession.
