Geo-Political Risk in 2015: Risky Business

The oil price roller-coaster. Western military intervention in the Middle East and North Africa. Deteriorating relations between Russia and the West. Economic and political uncertainty in the eurozone. Find out how these and other geo-political issues may affect your decision-making in this 60 minute webinar by two of The Conference Board of Canada's international experts. Glen Hodgson and Kip Beckman have a combined 60-plus years in assessing global economic trends, which they blend with the Conference Board’s expertise in economics, trade, and security. As a result, webinar participants get a uniquely holistic perspective on the ways in which geo-political issues could affect your business planning in 2015. The oil price shock of late 2014 and early 2015 is the most visible risk factor for the Canadian economy, and the effects differ based on region and industry. Adding to the complexity, geo-political pressures mean as much to oil prices as market factors. Most major oil producers — including Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Iran, Iraq, Russia, Nigeria, Libya, Venezuela and the Central Asian republics — are facing domestic and international political challenges that could flow over into their oil output. Canada's trade with Europe could affected by continuing economic uncertainty in the eurozone. The Greek crisis is expected to hamper Europe's outlook for months, if not years. Europe is also facing repercussions from its sanctions policies, both on Russia because of its intervention in Ukraine and on Iran over Tehran's nuclear program. China's economy is in transition from the world's manufacturer to more consumer-oriented. This has implications for its Asian neighbours, as well as Canada's focus on natural resource exports.
