The business and political landscape for both developed and developing markets has changed tremendously over the past year. The world shifted from a G-8 to a G-20 mentality. Investment flows now often go from East to West, giving room for the new multinationals to expand in the US or European markets. And we’ve seen a move toward a new paradigm of the “visible hand” – where national governments play a more central role in the private sector.
As a participant in this week’s summit in China, I am personally looking forward to the dialogue among the participants – heads of multinational corporations, government leaders, the media, and the nonprofit and multilateral community. This year’s program focuses heavily on new business models for a deleveraging world; emphasizes renewable and innovative technological solutions across a variety of industries; and discusses the changing role of government, sustainability, and global trade. My next post will give you preview of the meeting insights and dynamics – directly from Dalian. Stay tuned…
