The forces of globalization will continue to foster economic interdependence and systemic complexity in the 21st century. As the velocity of economic interactions increases and changes occur, there is a natural temptation for governments to rely on trade protectionism and regulatory intervention. The Evian Group@IMD focuses its efforts on promoting a better understanding of how multilateral rules and governance can help businesses and societies to benefit from economic globalization.
