9:00 – 10:15

China’s emerging leadership in global supply chains will accelerate the development and adoption of innovation in numerous new and innovative technologies, many of which—from robotics and Artificial Intelligence to life sciences—will have profound impact on the new World of Work. At the same time however, rising concerns about the rapid growth and pervasiveness of China’s influence on its global trade partners are forcing a re-examination of these complex, interconnected supply chains.  

Ross will place China’s economic development goals in the context of current geo-political trends and offer views on how this will impact the circulation of knowledge-based talent between Asia and the rest of the world, and Worldwide ERC’s CEO Peggy Smith will join Ross on stage to engage in a discussion with Ross about his findings.
