Wolfsberg Conference

«Times of Transition: Geopolitical and Geoeconomic Challenges and Opportunities for Decision-Makers, Business Leaders and Investors»

Business Leaders , entrepreneurs and investors are facing major global challenges and opportunities:

  • The rise of China, becoming once again more ideological, is the most important geopolitical challenge of our times. This is true for security issues in Asia-Pacific as well as in economic terms. China is likely to overtake the United States to become the world's largest economy by 2025.
  • In addition, geopolitics is a major driver of economic growth, particularly in Asia with the many big infrastructure projects, including the Chinese One Belt One Road strategy.
  • At the same time, we are in the midst of a protracted transfer of power in the White House. The specter of a new cold war looms large.
  • Connectivity is the most revolutionary force of the twenty-first century. Mankind is reengineering the planet, investing up to ten trillion dollars per year in transportation, energy, and communications infrastructure linking the world's burgeoning megacities together. This has profound consequences for geopolitics, economics, demographics, the environment, and social identity. Connectivity, not geography, is our destiny.
  • And last but not least, there are threats to freedom and the open society as well as a competition of values, i. e. market economy versus state capitalism, democratic versus autocratic top-down models, etc.

Top-class speakers at this year's Wolfsberg Conference will provide insights into these developments and challenge conventional wisdom. A must for any business leader and decision-maker.
