As we reflect on the events of 2021, ANZ and the Australia-United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce are also looking to the year ahead with the Chamber’s first event of the year. 2022 is expected to be a year of economic growth and great change including space exploration, the expanding metaverse, and hybrid working models – yet also flanked by uncertainty, with the continued rise in global tensions and frustrations regarding outdated institutions and policy. Join us to uncover expert opinions on the trends and economic predictions for the year ahead and what it could mean for you and your business.
The geopolitical landscape continues to evolve, as senior leaders grapple with global inflation and economic pressures. While the threat of the Covid-19 virus persists in its international upheaval, 2022 casts an optimistic shadow – a strong year of potential change ahead of China’s 20th congress, mid-term USA elections and the Australian election – coupled with global businesses increased focus on ESG and sustainability initiatives after COP-26 in Glasgow.
Our experts will also provide their insights into the newly signed Australia-UK Free Trade Agreement and how businesses should look to capitalise on a new era of Australian and UK relations, the competitive advantages that can be derived from such, and how changing consumer demands are shaping the geopolitical and economic landscape for 2022.
