Automation Alley: Global Economic Outlook for 2020 and Beyond

January 16, 2020

8:30 am - 11:30 am

This annual economic outlook will feature international business experts discussing the shifting dynamics of the global economy and how companies can best position themselves to take advantage of the opportunities and challenges of doing business around the world in 2020.

How will the seemingly endless U.S.-China trade dispute continue to impact the international economy? Will Brexit finally see closure? What about the current and future state of our nation’s trade agreements with major trading partners? Or the upcoming U.S. presidential election? Closer to home, how will these and other factors affect Michigan’s business climate, especially our automotive, defense and other advanced manufacturing and high-tech industries?

Speakers will focus on industries, countries and regions around the world where growth opportunities are particularly strong. They will also examine projected trends in two-way trade and investment flows and identify industries that will either benefit or be challenged by globalization in the short, medium and long terms.
