Welcome comments by the Organizers
While globalization keeps accelerating some are wondering whether we should give up on it, as there is a real risk of protectionist backlash. Innovation and new technologies are often seen as aggravating factors polarizing the world and increasing inequalities. In this increasingly uncertain context, what are the real pro and cons of globalization? How can we rethink its governance? What set of rules could revive trust and efficiency?
This necessary debate is too often captured by populists alone and there is an urgent need for a more rational and international discussion. This our ambition for this new edition of Les Rencontres Économiques in Singapore.
