Divergence in geo-economic and political trends across the regions of the world presents significant challenges in the year ahead. As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine lumbers on, conflict in West Asia, political instability in the Sahel and West Africa, and enduring tensions in East Asia continue to raise regional security considerations while simultaneously reflecting an international order in transition. Uncertainty abounds economically as well. Global growth rates for advanced and developing economies are expected to stay below historical averages in 2024, as inflation is expected to decline, slowly but steadily. Yet with these challenges come opportunities, offering new and existing leadership the chance to create innovative paths forward. Join us for this discussion on the factors shaping the global outlook in the year ahead and the opportunities that are likely to arise.
