DIGITAL GLOBALIZATION: THE NEW FRONTIER FOR MULTINATIONAL ENTERPRISES (organized by Academy of International Business (AIB))

This event occurs in Geneva Time (CET, GMT+2).

What is the evidence for digital globalization and what direction is it taking? Is it friend or foe for sustainable post-pandemic recovery and internationalization?

Issues to be addressed:

  • Reassessment of the “conventional role” of foreign investment and MNEs for sustainable development.
  • Potential impact on SDGs.
  • The shifting national and international policy space in an era of digital globalization.
  • Are there lessons from our international business research and evidence base to help identify smarter policies in light of opportunities and threats of digital globalization?
