We live in tumultuous times. Just when we think we are starting to emerge from the tail-end of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ukraine war broke out to further disrupt global supply chains especially of food and fuel. Amidst rising prices, governments all over the world are scrambling to contain inflationary pressures by hiking interest rates and potentially risking a global recession. At the same time, climate change is demanding that governments, regulators and the corporate sector set specific goals and targets to address issues that can no longer be ignored.
Where is the global economy heading? What should corporate leaders be looking out for? What kind of investments should organizations be making? How can organizations position themselves to benefit from new opportunities while containing the risks amidst dealing with these issues?
In this evening session, we have invited two economists – Prof Roberto Rigobon from MIT and Mr Allen Ng from Securities Commission Malaysia – to share their perspectives and insights.
