Come and meet renowned French and international specialists
From the worlds of business, finance and economic research, speakers and round-table participants will review 2016 and discuss global economic trends and issues facing the economy in 2017. The conference will focus on four major themes, including:
- Donald Trump: changing the geopolitical landscape?
- Central and Eastern Europe: safe bets in the emerging world?
- Middle East and Northern Africa economies in the face of falling oil prices: temporary shock or long-term trend?
- Nationalism and protectionism: a cyclical or unavoidable upsurge?
Donald Trump: changing the geopolitical landscape?
What impact might the election of Donald Trump have on the world’s geopolitical landscape? Is the world likely to be a more complex and volatile place with the new US President? And which of the campaign promises will be put into action? Is his ‘surprise’ election likely to intensify populist protest movements further afield? How will US foreign policy evolve ? And what are the potential consequences for Europe, China, Russia, Iran…?
Economies of Central and Eastern Europe: safe bets in the emerging world?
Central & Eastern European economies do not seem to have been affected by difficulties experienced by emerging markets since 2014. Where does this relative resilience come from? Which are the most dynamic sectors? How do we explain the vigour of the middle classes? Is Russia’s proximity a risk factor?
Middle East and North Africa economies in the face of falling oil prices: temporary shock or long-term trend?
Should the growth models of the Middle East and North Africa be revised to take into account the drop in oil prices? Are certain affected countries further along the process of economic diversification and structural reforms than others? How are their governments and their middle classes reacting? Are geopolitical tensions an obstacle to recovery?
