Event Description:

You're invited to Automation Alley for our annual discussion on the shifting dynamics of the global economy and how companies can best position themselves to take advantage of the opportunities and challenges of doing business in the U.S. and overseas.

Join international business experts as they discuss firsthand insights about the industries and regions around the world where growth opportunities are particularly strong. Speakers will also examine projected trends in two-way trade and investment flows and identify industries that will either benefit or be challenged by globalization in the short, medium and long terms.

Topics to include:
- The impact of interest rate hikes on the world economy
- The bid to renegotiate free-trade agreements
- Deregulation
- Tax reform
- Health care
- Potential stock market corrections
- Geopolitical risks (e.g., China, Iran, North Korea and Russia)

Closer to home, how will these and other factors affect Michigan’s business and industry climate, especially the automotive and other advanced manufacturing industries?
