The policy of the new US administration signals to significantly change the attitude of the United States to international trade and globalisation. Its first reaction to the almost finished TPP agreement, TTIP negotiation with the European Union, the long existing an functioning NAFTA as well as demands for introduction of import duties on cars and other products clearly shows that it will not be a "business as usual". How will it affect the automotive production in China, the United States, South Korea and other key car producing countries and regions? China has already given a number signals that it can replace the United States as the leading free trade protagonist in the Pacific region and maybe elsewhere. And of course the departure of the United Kingdom from the EU, so called Brexit, may play an important role in this new international trade and business environment. Many of these issues will probably receive answers during the course of 2017.

The expected new situation described above is taking place in a moment when the automotive industry is facing major challenges, perhaps the biggest since the invention of the cars as we have known them for decades. Not only the industry has to deal with important environmental requirements which is already now requesting enormous investments in the development of new powertrains, in particular the electrically chargeable cars - but is the electrical car the future powertrain? The pressure to invest in the development of connected and automatically driven cars, to contribute to the changes in our urban environment from polluted and jammed cities to smart cities, will ask for important  human, financial and other resources. Is China and Chinese manufacturers better placed then the US, Japanese or EU industry? What will be or better should be the role of public authorities and what should be the role of the  industry? Will they find a common language to make sure that not only the clean, safe, connected and automated cars will arrive in the expected span of time, but that also the needed infrastructure and clean energy is ready. Probably the best answer we know today is a holistic or integrated approach, where the industry, the public regulatory and enforcement authorities, and the citizens work together. It will probably, and maybe above all, require a change in mindsets of everyone concerned.

An important question is remaining without an answer: will the young people of today still like to own and use motor vehicles? In a number of countries around the world we see the tendency, to switch from ownership to use. Car sharing, use of public transport and totally new mobility means may be taking over from the traditional cars - or at least from the way we will use them. And what role will play the new, today maybe utopian dreams about completely new means of transportation such as Hyperloop? These new ways we are supposed to move in the future are being developed in the speed of light and beginning to be taken seriously. Is China going to be the cradle of them? Or will the old world still dominate?

The 15th CEIBS Automotive Forum will deal with the important questions outlined above: the future of free trade and globalisation, in particular in view of the position of the new US administration, the fast arrival of smart solutions to our cities, automated driving and solution to global environmental problems that are expected from the automotive industry. It will include a dialogue with young people "how do I want to move tomorrow"?
