The path to resurgence has never been more vital in the aftermath of the epidemic, as stalwarts and visionaries from all industries take us through critical macroeconomic elements influencing change at the forthcoming 7th edition of the Global Business Summit.

Everyone loves a great comeback story. And, this year, corporations, big and small, are scripting their own historic return to profitability. No doubt the phase of recovery may throw a few challenges, but they remain steadfast on the path towards a resurgence. The world is still healing from one of the largest debacles in the recent past, and world economies are devising their own sustainable paths. Yet, what does resurgence entail, and how can corporates and leaders,  lead the change towards not just short-term profitability but sustainability in the long term.

Scripting growth for a brighter future

Apart from dealing with pandemic losses, corporations have found it difficult to recover losses, let alone sustain a profitable trajectory. Companies quickly embraced the latest digitization methods because of the chaos and saw them through the near term, but there were other considerations such as economic and political repercussions.

[box type=”shadow” align=”” class=”” width=””]The Global Business Summit (GBS) in its seventh edition, this year, tackles the unique challenges faced by companies and corporations looking to comeback in the new normal and beyond. A Times Group venture, that has brought together some of the decade’s noteworthy visionaries and business leaders. In the upcoming summit to be held on 11th and 12th March, GBS delves into the macroeconomic challenges and deliberate over the roadmap for sustainable and inclusive economic growth. From Bill Gates to Narayan Murthy, stalwarts across sectors have enthralled audiences with key insights on the future of business around four pillars viz. geo-strategy, world economics, health, environment, and sustainability and digital inclusion and acceleration. Here’s what the leaders will discuss:[/box]

Geo-strategy

As a part of the plenary discussions, leaders will take a critical look at the world’s shifting geopolitical landscape and investigate its implications on global relationships before deliberating on a path to recovery, primarily from the standpoint of trade and commerce. Multilateralism, global investment and trade, and bigger patterns in global economic imbalances will all be discussed.

World economics

This segment of the Plenary session will focus on the future of economic prosperity and how various global economies, as well as continents and regions, may contribute to a more inclusive and resilient future. The lectures in this part of the summit will cover subjects including neoliberalism, globalisation, taxation, the economics of long-term growth and productivity, as well as the economics of global issues like migration and pandemics.

Health, environment, and sustainability

The pandemic has marked a turning point in human history, and it is unfortunate that it has virtually hampered to our progress in eradicating major issues like hunger and poverty. As a result, the focus of this part will be on the key health risks and shortcomings that the pandemic has exposed. While leaders will discuss how to address these concerns, they will also use this as an opportunity to discuss sustainability. Under environment, this section will cover topics such as decarbonisation, security of environmental resources, climate change, green finance, inter-connected systems and risks, and bringing about a transition and new leadership.

Digital inclusion and acceleration

Technology has long been regarded as a great enabler, but it has recently earned the label of great leveller. Technology allows us to do tasks much more quickly, and it is up to leaders and governments to ensure that we make the most of our decade’s technology innovations. Frontier technologies and their significance in economics, governance, and the society will be discussed in this segment of the conference. Here, leaders will also discuss topics revolving around ethics and identity, the role of technology in reducing inequality, tech in business disruption, disruption to jobs and people and security.
