The distribution of economic power has shifted from a Western-dominated system to include other major countries of influence, such as China, which is testing existing alliances and challenging the international order. Key players, including the United States, the European Union and China, are seeking to influence other economies and are deploying novel economic tools made available as a result of increased globalization and new technologies.

This fourth event in the series examines important drivers of economic power from the perspective of influential countries and the approaches used to increase competitiveness and shape key domains of the digital and globalized economy. Speakers will explore strategic areas such as dual-use technologies and how they impact national security and economic prosperity, and other trends Canadians should be paying close attention to in the coming years.

Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how the current international order is shifting, how countries are leveraging economic tools, and the potential impact on Canada’s economic and national security objectives.
