Economic Outlook for 2017
January 12, 2017
2-3 p.m. (ET)
A cloud of uncertainty hangs over the 2017 global economic outlook, as the business impact of political shocks from Brexit to the election of Donald Trump remain unresolved, while emerging markets struggle with domestic tensions and soft global demand. Yet the implications for Boards are clear: deeper engagement in strategic planning to challenge management’s assumptions and ensure that plans are resilient against risk.
In this webinar, Joel Whitaker, head of research at emerging-market advisory firm Frontier Strategy Group, will share FSG’s 2017 outlook for the global economy and priority areas for board-member engagement. He will share FSG analysts’ latest forecasts for key economic indicators, highlight economic and political scenarios that could disrupt 2017 business plans, and provide an overview of key trends for the year ahead in Asia, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
