EIU’s Robert Ward’s CEIBS lecture on Global Outlook plus insights from Prof Xu Bin

Robert Ward, Editorial Director of The Economist Intelligence Unit, highlights key issues that will affect the global economy in 2018. In this March 9 address he touches on everything from global growth, global order, Brexit, US President Donald Trump’s chances of staying in office, as well as China, India and other emerging markets. Aptly titled “As Good as it Gets?”, Ward’s presentation is as deep in substance as it is diverse in the geographies covered. Xu Bin, Professor of Economics and Finance, Wu Jinglian Chair in Economics, and Associate Dean (Research) at CEIBS follows, and complements, Ward’s presentation. Prof. Xu provides highlights from his recent research and original insights on geopolitical and economic analysis. The session culminates in a Q&A session. Held at the Shanghai Campus of the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), the event was organised by CEIBS Alumni International Chapter (CAIC), their first event since Chinese New Year. The audience, some of whom joined from Africa and Europe via Facebook live, included CEIBS MBA and GEMBA students, members of the CEIBS alumni community, and CEIBS faculty.
