Collaborating to achieve global growth and stability
CEOs are telling us...
Nearly half of global CEOs expect more openness to free trade and capital flows, up from around one third a year ago. And over half agreed that government and business partnership will be more effective at mitigating key global risks like climate change, terrorism and financial crises.
Rethinking value and reshaping strategies
CEOs collectively face a global market where half the world is growing at twice that of the other half. To reach their shared goals of growth and stability, business leaders in both fast-growing economies and recovering economies need to collaborate to tackle macro risks, seek common regulatory and trade standards and monetary policy. In addition, businesses are partnering with governments on shared priorities including fostering a skilled workforce, generating innovation and safeguarding IP.
