Ten years after the financial crisis, G20 head-of-state meetings are widely considered as “Talking Club” events. Ironically, however, Mr. Trump’s best efforts to undermine international cooperation seem to turn the Hamburg Summit this weekend into a highly relevant meeting to discuss alliances, align strategies, and find new ground beyond US leadership. While the meetings of Mr. Trump, Putin and Xi will grab the headlines, talks at side of the event, including a new Japan-EU FTA, strategies for energy and digital security, as well as about the future of globalization will be at least as important. Let’s discuss which cards have been put on the table and what we have learned from behind the smoke screens.
In the July CI meeting, we welcome Mr. Martin Schulz, Senior Research Fellow, Fujitsu Research Institute. Martin was a popular speaker at a past CEO Insights Forum in the evening. He will be coming back to share his insights and spur a discussion on some of the outcomes of the G20 summit in Europe. Please join us as we discuss
* G20 in Hamburg – The frictions and solutions
* US international policy is taking shape – Who is engaging whom?
* The end of globalization or a new start on digital platforms?
