欧洲难民的商业意义

伦敦——面对数十年来涌入欧洲最大规模的难民潮,欧盟及其成员国政府的对策和政策建议都各不相同,讨论也极度政治化。联合国难民署国际救援委员会等国际组织和非政府机构,以及教皇弗朗西斯坎特伯雷大主教等宗教界领袖也参与进来。但有一个团体寂然无声非常引人注目:那就是商界。

当各国政府、慈善机构和捐助机构积极讨论如何分担难民之旅的责任时——从约旦、黎巴嫩和土耳其的难民营到抵达安置点的交通状况——欧洲商界却出奇地安静。但在跨国公司在世界各地扩张、商界势力比以往任何时候都更强大的时代,私营部门必须与政府和非政府组织合作,以协助解决大规模难民流入带来的短期和长期挑战。

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
