REACTION 24: Adapting to a changing geopolitical landscape

Blog Post created by Mary Johnson on Feb 26, 2018

From our sponsor, KPMG: 

 

Geopolitical uncertainty is on the rise. Volatile oil and gas prices, shifting alliances in the Middle East, shocks to the European Union (EU) such as Brexit, the expansion of China, the Trump administration in the US, and the rise of nationalism and opposition to free trade — all these developments and more are increasing stress levels across the business world. Traditionally, the chemical industry has been more reactive than proactive about dealing with geopolitical disruptions. However, chemical companies would do well to consider appointing a Chief Geopolitical Officer (CGO) to help them address uncertainties in an increasingly turbulent world.

 

Join Rohitesh Dhawan, Director, Geopolitics Center of Excellence, KPMG in the UK, and Andrew D. Bishop, Deputy Director of Research, Eurasia Group, who will be discussing these issues on this webcast.
