Reinventing Bretton Woods Committee
The global economy is on the threshold of a new world - tectonic and fundamental shifts are happening in its development.
The WORLD 2016 faced with a number of complex challenges in geopolitics, economy and financial system. We have seen a sharp decline in the growth of BRICS countries and emerging markets, the fragile growth of world economy, the end of super cycle of commodities prices, slowdown of global trade, rising risks of financial crisis and big recession in emerging markets, series of currencies depreciations, tensions around Brexit and its implication on the European union and the world, great volatility in financial markets and the period of low investments and the capital outflow from EMs and developing countries.
The idea is to discuss under an overarching theme of the End of Hyperglobalisation, the groundbreaking shifts shaping our regions and respective countries in terms of economic and geopolitical risks and their impact on the sustainable growth. We will pay particular attention to policy options to mitigate spillovers and how we can benefit from the new developments and trends.
