International Conference of Restructuring of the Global Economy (ROGE) 2014 Cambridge

  • Conference Call
  • The Acad­emy of Busi­ness and Retail Man­age­ment (ABRM) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Inter­na­tional Man­age­ment Research Acad­emy (IMRA) will organ­ise their 2014 Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence of Restruc­tur­ing of the Global Econ­omy (ROGE) in Cam­brdige, United King­dom on June 23 – 24.06.2014.

    Ever since the pub­li­ca­tion of the BRIC [ Brazil, Rus­sia, India , China ] report by Gold­man Sachs in 2001, the debate about the role of emerg­ing coun­tries vs. the devel­oped coun­tries in shap­ing global busi­ness has gath­ered momen­tum. A revised ver­sion of the same report enti­tled “BRICs and Beyond” by the same authors, with upward revi­sion of cer­tain growth pro­jec­tions, has added fur­ther fuel to the debate so much so that by now, most coun­tries have accepted that the world econ­omy is in tran­si­tion. In other words, the coun­tries as above joined by oth­ers such as South Korea, Mex­ico and to some extent the major Arab coun­tries and Iran and Indone­sia will exert a much greater influ­ence in world affairs aided by their increas­ing eco­nomic power. The devel­oped coun­tries, led obvi­ously by the major economies of USA, Japan, Ger­many, Britain , France and oth­ers [ the so-​called G-​7/​8 group of nations ] have accepted that their dom­i­nance in shap­ing world opin­ion will be shelved as the growth gra­di­ent of the emerg­ing economies becomes increas­ingly steeper. Nowhere has this been more reflected than in the G-​20 [Group of 20 coun­tries – devel­oped and emerg­ing] meet last year [2008] in call­ing for fis­cal stim­u­lus to induce growth to beat the reces­sion­ary forces.

    It is but nat­ural that such a chang­ing eco­nomic sce­nario calls for fresh think­ing towards devel­op­ment of poli­cies exam­in­ing macro­eco­nomic sta­bil­ity as well as fram­ing of strate­gies by firms irre­spec­tive of their sizes. Multi­na­tion­als and SMEs, all will be involved in for­mu­lat­ing strate­gies to com­pete effec­tively and grow – whether they belong to agri­cul­ture, indus­try or ser­vice sec­tors. There is intense pres­sure on both gov­ern­ments and busi­nesses to per­form and deliver. In such a sce­nario, alter­na­tive –and may even be controversial-​policies and strate­gies will need to be thought out and placed before the deci­sion mak­ing bodies.

    Many experts have pre­dicted the end of US dom­i­nance of world mar­kets fol­low­ing the cur­rent busi­ness cycle. Need­less to say, this will have strate­gic sig­nif­i­cance for the busi­nesses at large as well as for those respon­si­ble for coun­try man­age­ment. The basic objec­tive of the con­fer­ence would then be to expose the par­tic­i­pants to the chal­lenges that lie ahead as a result of the shift in the pur­chas­ing power of coun­tries in the east and the west. This could best be achieved by bring­ing together experts from var­i­ous fields-​academics and pro­fes­sion­als– to dis­cuss and eval­u­ate the options open­ing up on a com­mon plat­form namely, the con­fer­ence pro­posed. It is expected that at the end of this exer­cise, the par­tic­i­pants would be in a posi­tion to develop action­able strate­gies to put their organ­i­sa­tions on a higher gra­di­ent of growth.
