About the Programme
Globalisation 4.0 is a new term that was coined at the World Economic Forum in March 2019. This next phase of globalisation, brought about by the advent of new technologies; artificial intelligence and machine learning; robotics and the Internet of Things; will transform all industries and sectors, on an unprecedented global scale. Unlike previous phases, which were mainly in connection to goods-producing sectors and goods trading, Globalisation 4.0 will have a much greater impact on the service industry, which professional services (such as the legal profession) is a part of.
While this tectonic shift will bring about new opportunities and even increases in productivity, the pace at which this development displaces billions of workers is a cause of major concern for governments all over the world.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic came upon us, there was already doubt about the benefits of free trading of goods across borders with increasing backlash against globalisation. With an on-going pandemic now in our midst, technology has proven to be more important to everyone in business than ever before, from MNCs to even the hawkers. What new trends affecting globalisation have emerged as a result of the pandemic? Will there be a new surge of interest in technology which will buck the trend of anti-globalisation?
Hear from Mr Chaney Ho, who has a wealth of experience in digital transformation and strategic innovation management, and his views on a new era of globalisation, and how these changes may affect business owners and businesses going forward.
