Event Description:

What does the future hold for the U.S.-China trade war? How will Brexit play out? And how could interest rates, geopolitical risks and other potential blind spots derail what promises to be a strong year for U.S. business and industry? Join Automation Alley and a group of international business experts for a 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 around the world.

Closer to home, how will these and other factors affect Michigan’s business climate, especially our automotive, aerospace/defense and other advanced manufacturing and technology industries?

This event will also focus on industries and countries/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.

This event is presented in partnership with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Michigan Business Network.
