More than a decade after the world was rocked by the financial crisis, a range of new forces is shaping the global economic landscape.

Protectionism is on the rise; firms from emerging economies are globalising; businesses have to navigate new regulations and tax regimes; technology is disrupting traditional business models; and firms are having to engage with younger generations that have new expectations of work and consuming goods and services.
