The global economy is currently at a crossroads that can diverge either into an era of stable growth or one that feels the downward pressures of the next global recession.

This webinar will focus on the economic outlook and the macroeconomic trends shaping the global economy in 2016, and aims to discover how the combined risks and opportunities will affect the economy. Experts will evaluate the excess oil supply, declining commodity prices, devaluing currencies and geopolitical unrest.

Frost & Sullivan thought leaders will examine past global recessions and draw parallels with the current economic scenario. The webinar will be followed by an interactive Q&A session.

Attend this webinar to discover:

  • Top 2016 trends influencing global economic growth
  • Risks and drivers influencing investment decisions and expansion strategies
  • What markets are being considered as growing investment hotbeds

This webinar will benefit the business community, developmental agencies and university students interested in understanding economic trends and their potential implications.

Thought leader insights:

"The world economy is going through a transition period. CEOs need to be concerned with what the economy is transitioning toward," Frost & Sullivan's Global President and Managing Partner Aroop Zutshi. "Companies need to understand the interplay of risks and opportunities in 2016 to make lucrative investment decisions and take part in this transformational global growth. Additionally, companies need to prepare themselves for the future, given the disruption, collapse and transformations we are seeing in markets, industries and regions."

"On one hand, declining oil and additional commodity prices can help support stronger economic growth, however these factors can also raise vulnerabilities in countries dependent on oil and commodity exports," Frost & Sullivan's Emerging Market Innovation Industry Analyst, Sanghamitra Chatterjee. "A country's macroeconomic fundamentals and policy choices will play a major role in determining the effect lower commodity prices will have on the 2016 global growth trajectory."

"Advanced economies, such as the United States and Europe, should recover in 2016 with the support of accommodative monetary policies," Frost & Sullivan's Mobility Program Manager and Senior Economist, Africa, Craig Parker. "However, emerging markets are experiencing a slowdown due to falling prices, depreciating currencies and capital outflow. Additionally, a new wave of economies may occur, frontier markets are positioning themselves as emerging market frontrunners in Africa, Asia and Latin America."
