In 2015 there were many crises facing Europe, from the Greek debt crisis to refugees, terrorist attacks and finally the Volkswagen emission scandal, though in the meantime economic growth strengthened. This year will not be different, and in this webcast we will look into some of the most pressing issues facing the European outlook currently, such as the impact of a weakening of growth in China and economic recession in Russia. As a special topic, we will focus on some key insights from the Davos meeting of political and business leaders, on topics such as the downbeat ‘mood’ on the current economy and in going forward what CEO’s  expect from new developments such as the ‘4th industrial revolution’. Join us for an interactive discussion on these issues and more.
