The global economy is undergoing a massive shift in terms of what drives economic competitiveness. We are moving away from an economy based on traditional forms of capital to one that places greater value on intangible assets such as data, intellectual property, and patents. This significant trend is accelerating rapidly and shows no signs of slowing down or reversing course.
Coupled with this shift is the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on the global economy. The pandemic is expected to have an enduring impact on the future of work for every sector and profession around the world.
The first event in the New Economy Series focuses on how the economy has changed and what policies will be required to support a strong recovery and respond to longer-term trends such as the shift towards the digital economy. You will learn what this means for the public service and how you will need to adapt.
