JDGAP Side Event Global Geo-Economic Leadership

The current geopolitical and geo-economic landscape is tense and poses challenges for the German government and its allies. Key issues include de-risking and the consequences of globalization for world trade. Security and economic resilience are also playing an increasingly important role. This raises the question of whether Germany is ready to assume strategic leadership as a global geo-economic player.

At our official MSC2024 side event, we will address this topic with renowned experts and political decision-makers. Together, we will analyze Germany’s perspectives in view of current developments and determine whether and how it can proactively shape the future as a leading geo-economic player.
