Welcome to RiskMap 2017. This year our central theme is the challenge to globalisation and free trade and how businesses can adapt and thrive in these changing times. Donald Trump’s triumph in the United States election is the biggest and loudest manifestation of a global trend in which voting publics no longer follow the trajectories political elites set for them and reject the economic orthodoxy. RiskMap 2017 will shed light on this tumultuous world and help you see beyond the drama and hyperbole.
