The topic of this year’s summit is the new global context, looking at how emerging economies are growing more powerful and assertive regionally and globally. Leaders will discuss the importance of global cooperation in areas such as climate governance, cyber security and international trade and investment. All these topics are of upmost importance in 2015 due to the potential end of the complex, fragile and uncertain economic integration and international partnership that has been in place since 1989.
What is clear is that the entire world is being confronted by profound political, economic, social and, above all, technological transformations. These changes are altering long-standing assumptions about our future, resulting in an entirely “new global context” for decision-making.
One of the most important topics is how to strengthen the awareness and contextual intelligence efforts to ward off any potential problem. They will discuss the question of how our post-crisis economies can become more expansive, dynamic, inclusive and resilient moving forward. They will also look at the internet of things, exploring how technological, demographic and economic forces are profoundly transforming industries and markets in areas such as healthcare, financial services, energy, manufacturing and retail.
Another important topic to be covered in the summit is social instability, which occurs when political systems fail to adjust to change. The world’s growing economic inequalities and deepening polarization indicate this is a major risk. Advanced and emerging economies alike need new ways of responding to shifting demands without risking social cohesion. Faced with uncertainty, how can societies avoid the vicious cycle of distrust, polarization and unrest?
