PwC Azerbaijan’s 2nd Annual CEO Survey is a part of PwC’s 21st Global Annual CEO Survey presented at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
In this year’s survey, we have explored CEO views on trust and tenure. In addition we have looked into trade and globalisation; capital, people and products continue to move but where are the opportunities for growth and where are the challenges.
The recent crisis had a positive effect on Azerbaijan, as it triggered state enterprises and private sector to reconsider their strategies, business and operating models. In fact, the percentage of local CEOs who believe that the global economy will improve increased from 23% in 2016 to 45% in 2018.
Despite record levels of short-term optimism in the global economy, CEOs worldwide report heightened levels of anxiety regarding business, economic, and, particularly, societal threats confronting their organisations.
