Perspective geostrategice 2020: Pandemia accelerează cele patru forțe care transformă peisajul global al afacerilor – EY, 20.05.20

  • În definirea planurilor de dezvoltare, directorii executivi trebuie să țină seama de patru forțe majore care transformă peisajul global al afacerilor: globalizarea și apariția unui nou tip de regionalizare; accelerarea concurenței globale în domeniul tehnologiei; demografiile îmbătrânite și cursa împotriva schimbărilor climatice. Pandemia COVID-19 nu modifică fundamental arhitectura gestionării eficiente a riscurilor geopolitice, dar va accelera traiectoria fiecăreia dintre aceste tendințe, se arată în raportul EY Perspective geostrategice în 2020.

Caspian Report – 15.01.20

  • Some years are overshadowed by finances, some by politics, and some by conflict. In Asia, all three will linger throughout 2020. China’s economic slowdown will continue to delineate the regional economic outlook. Additionally, due to uncertainties over global trade agreements, many governments are left with no tools to address their local issues. This has given rise to economic inequality and financial austerity measures, which have resulted in social unrest. So, let’s talk about the risks, trends and overall geopolitics of Asia-Pacific in 2020.

Strafor: Three Geopolitical Trends for 2020


Nikkei Asian Review


Tendinţele în materie de tehnologie în 2020 – ZF, 31.12.19

  • Zburatul în spaţiu va putea fi accesibil contra unui cost de 250.000 de dolari, iar companiile de telefonie mobilă vor începe să funcţioneze pe surse de energie durabile
  • Protestele mişcării Extinction Rebellion au ajutat ca problemele climatice să ajungă pe agenda companiilor din sector tehnologic. Mişcarea militează pentru protejarea mediului prin constrângerea nonviolentă a acţiunilor guvernamentale de a evita colapsul ecologic.
  • Producătorii de telefoane mobile şi de bunuri de larg consum vor fi nevoiţi să aibă procese de producţie mai ecologice şi să facă telefoane mai uşor de reparat. (…)
  • Este aşteptat ca până la sfârşitul anului 2020 să se ajungă la un număr de 125 de operatori care vor introduce tehnologia 5G.
  • O tendinţă pentru anul 2020 va fi calculatorul cuantic, iar Google a promis că, începând cu 2020, un asemenea calculator va fi disponibil pentru utilizatori, dar nu a oferit detalii în acest sens, scrie BBC. Funcţionarea calculatorului cuantic se bazează pe fenomene cuantice şi nu pe bază de tranzistori, precum calculatoarele folosite în mod curent. Un astfel de calculator permite efectuarea unui număr mai mare de operaţii într-un timp mult mai scurt. Calculatoarele cuantice ar putea crea progrese în chimie, industria farmaceutică şi inginerie.

Martin Reeves, Senior Partner & Managing Director & Chairman, BCG Henderson Institute:

  • To compete, businesses must build the capacity for continual reinvention which is necessary for a faster changing environment.
  • To achieve this, leaders will have to build hybrid human-machine learning organizations, master the science of organizational change and harness human diversity.

Antonia Colibășanu: A view from Eastern Europe: predictions for 2020 – 9.12.19

  • The most important and stringent problem that is left for the EU to solve in 2020 is that of Brexit. Even if the Brits have their own mind made up, a big decision needs to be made on the British divorce – and, as in the case of all big decisions within the EU, unanimity is needed. So, the decision will have to satisfy the Germans on market access, Luxemburg on financial issues, the Irish on border issues and the Spanish on Gibraltar, to name just a few in the EU that will likely have to do some “deep thinking” over anything relating to Brexit. That is difficult to say the least – anytime in history.
  • 2020 is also the first year in office for the EU Commission. The accommodation period will likely be short – not only due to the current political and economic problems of the EU and its members but also because of the fact that the newly reformed multiannual financial framework will be negotiated this year. For Eastern Europe and the Balkans, this process will show, one more, proofs for the EU commitment to the EU bordering and the neighboring regions (or its no-commitment).
  • The other element that will pose more challenges for Europe (EU and non-EU members alike) is the increasingly important role Turkey plays for the region. Ankara no longer feels satisfied with its “Western ally” status – it seeks to grow its influence in the Middle East and the Balkans and negotiates directly over the migration crisis, reaching out to Germany directly. While its economics is still weakened, the political game Turkey is playing poses new risks and asks for the EU position on security and trade matters both. As Turkey resets its relationship with the West (the Western Europe and the U.S. both), it is the Balkans and Eastern Europe – the border zones, that will feel the growing tension.”

The World in 2020, as forecast by The Economist – Brookings, 20.04.20

  • I learned that machines may already be quicker than humans in learning and better than us at predicting the future. Less happily, I learned that on issues that matter a lot, the analysis published by some venerable international institutions is absolutely unreliable.
