Government and the global CEO

Rethinking and reshaping the business environment

Fixing the financial system, managing publicly owned stakes in companies, coordinating internationally on global issues such as climate change, attending to long-standing problems in infrastructure and other areas mean significant change for nations and require increased collaboration between the public and private sector.

Rethinking and reshaping the business environment: Government and the Global CEO, a survey of almost 1,200 company leaders supplemented by interviews with a selection of government leaders, considers the implications of the post-crisis environment for governments and how they must act in their different roles: as owners of businesses; as major debtors internationally; and as smarter, more collaborative regulators.
