With the recent UK referendum result where the majority of the UK population voted to leave the EU by 52% voting Yes, to 48% voting No, the U.S. election result where Donald Trump has been elected as the new President of one of the world's greatest super-powers, both coupled with the rising tide of anti-establishment and nationalistic parties coming to the fore in the continent of Europe, we ask the question:
Has Globalisation as a universal project began to falter, with National and Local currents rising to fill the void?
We will be welcoming a panel of local industry specialists to discuss, debate and answer the questions that will affect the region.
Experts will debate and discuss the topics of economic, financial, social and political impact from a pro-globalisation and pro-localisation perspective.
