Are there new growth realities for Sweden’s neighbors on the other side of the Baltic Sea and in China? How can these countries and emerging markets – more generally regarded – compete in the future and create growth?
During the conference, we look mainly at both the short-term and the long-term outlook for the three Baltic countries, Russia and China - but also for emerging economies in more general terms. Where do these countries have their growth potential in the future – and how should Swedish companies face this (partly) new macro and market growth environment?
