International experts, academics, business leaders and policy makers will present to Basque companies the “current and future world scenario.”
International experts, academics, business leaders and policy makers will present the “current and future global scenario” to Basque companies during “Mundura Begira“, the benchmark event for internationalization in the Basque Country organized by the Basque Internationalization Agency-Basque Trade & Investment of the SPRI Group on November 10 at the Euskalduna Palace in Bilbao. Registration is now open.
As expressed in the title of this edition of Mundura Begira, “A look at where the world is heading”, the objective is to offer Basque companies a vision of the change in the economic and business paradigm that has accelerated in the last two years.
During the day, the latest trends related to the road to recovery will be analyzed and discussed, and invited experts from around the world will debate and share the main challenges we face. Likewise, companies will be able to meet with the representatives of Basque Trade & Investment abroad, formed by 15 offices and 34 consultants covering 95 countries, to present their projects or raise their doubts or concerns.
The program will address the following topics:
During the event, the study “Key industries in emerging markets for 2050” developed by Basque Trade & Investment in collaboration with The Economist Intelligence Unit will be presented. Afterwards, the event will host a round table with Basque businessmen and women.
Mundura Begira will present what is probably the biggest transformation that international markets have undergone since the advent of the Internet, the so-called three transitions: digital, green and socio-health.
Likewise, the global scenario in which Basque companies will have to operate in the coming years will also be explained, a world in which competition between the United States and China will continue, with a global market in which Asian countries are becoming increasingly important.
The focus will be on looking towards Asia, analyzing the opportunities that Asian markets will generate between now and 2050 and the capabilities of Basque companies to position and take advantage of these opportunities.
The global scenario looming in a post-pandemic world is full of uncertainties, with an international order in which Asian powers, especially China, have taken center stage and in which technological transformation will change industries and drive new business models.
These challenges will be analyzed in Mundura Begira by leading international speakers, presenting from how the great green and digital revolution that is already taking place affects our industries, to the opportunities that this new global scenario presents to the Basque company. A space for dialogue and reflection that seeks to obtain some certainties that will help Basque companies to face the challenges of the future.
