Asia Pacific cities and regions: consumer spending and office-based employment in 2021 and out to 2035
Asia Pacific and many of its cities are doing much to help lead the global recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. In this webinar we will look to see what that means for consumer spending and office-based employment in the region and its cities. We will ask how those factors may change in 2021 and out to 2035. Where will the spending be concentrated? And on what? Where will the new office jobs be? Will more of the region’s big cities come to challenge the likes of New York, London and Paris? And are there any cities and regions to watch?
We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between APAC, EMEA and the Americas:
- EMEA – Wednesday 14th July | 10:00 BST
- Americas – Wednesday 14th July| 16:00 EDT
- APAC – Wednesday 14th July | 10:00 HKT

Key themes for 2024 – another year of price weakness
Energy and metal markets have experienced a sharp reversal in prices this year, as we expected, diminishing the Super cycle thesis of our competitors. In this webinar, we examine the key themes affecting commodity markets in 2024 as the energy transition gathers pace and discuss our leading calls for prices in the year ahead. Overall, we expect another year of price weakness as we forecast the global economy to grow at its slowest pace since the global financial crisis, excluding the pandemic. We also anticipate supply to improve across commodity markets next year, which will further weigh on prices.Find Out More
