Unpacking the Unknowns - Sweden and the Global economy

With unprecedented global uncertainty and an increase in tension between economic superpowers, it is getting more and more difficult to plan for both business and growth. Our ICCS series of events this winter season will unpack and explain in ‘plain speak’, the current global and local economic mega-trends. With the support of expert speakers and engaging dialog, the series will help our members and their guests to better plan for 2021 and onwards
