There have been some major upheavals in the global political and economic scene from Brexit to tariffs, and everything in between. Europe and the international community are focused on Britain’s vote and decision to leave the European Union, as the impact to business and politics is debated on a global scale. In the meantime, the world is watching as the US follows a policy of tariffs, debates the onset of potential economic slowdown and enters a tumultuous election year.
Join the conversation during GEO’s Pan European Regional Event opening keynote with Marcel Fratzscher, President of DIW Berlin, one of the leading economic research institutes and think tanks in Europe, and Professor of Macroeconomics and Finance at Humboldt-University Berlin, as he provides attendees with a greater understanding of what the current economic and political climate mean for the future of not just Europe, but also the rest of the world.
In recent years, HR has undergone dramatic changes in its role and the impact it has on shaping companies.
