Global Cities: Identifying opportunities amid long-term challenges

Date: Wednesday 6 December 2023

The established world order of urban economic power is evolving and by 2050 there will be sizeable shifts. Many mature economic powerhouses in the developed world are facing demographic timebombs and are likely to fall down the global rankings as a result. Replacing them, in scale though not prosperity, will be cities in emerging markets, though these cities aren’t without risk and many face a plethora of challenges. In this webinar, we will discuss some of the key long-term trends, challenges and opportunities facing city economies.
