The Growth Net has been designed to answer the questions raised by this new world order coming up. It is the only event to help you understand the new growth economies.


There’s a new constellation of growth driving the global economy,
can you afford to ignore it?

Growth economies continue to drive global growth. In the new constellation of economic vitality, a number of dynamic economies such as Indonesia, South Africa, Singapore, Vietnam, Colombia, Chile, Mexico and the Gulf nations, to name a few, are increasingly latching on to the growth momentum generated by China, India and Brazil, powering global investment, finance and trade. The rise of diversified global conglomerates and agile new businesses from growth market countries is changing the way international business success is sought and won.


A crucial context for the 3rd Annual Meeting

The third Annual Meeting of The Growth Net will take place in a context where slower growth is a new fixture among emerging market countries. Many of the “new growth countries” are affected by cyclical factors, as well as the end of the Quantitative Easing policy in the US, the slowdown in China, the continuing economic crisis in Europe and uncertainties about the success of Abenomics in Japan. However, the present slowdown does not change the fact that the majority of the new growth countries remain the most dynamic group of economies in the world with growth rates expected to remain two to three times higher than those of the developed economies for the foreseeable future.
The countries comprising the new constellation of growth will continue to benefit from the demographics dividend, rapid urbanization, a growing middle class developing new consumption patterns and from the positive impact of fast growing intra-regional trade to sustain their growth.
However, this new phase will increasingly be marked by two crucial orientations that will constitute the core of the agenda of the 3rd Annual Meeting of The Growth Net:
1) Increasing differentiation among the new constellation of growth countries. Economies where structural reforms are implemented, where sound industrial and pro-growth policies are put in place, are now capturing the attention of the international business community; other countries which had relied too complacently on the commodities boom or have been postponing politically difficult reforms are now left on the sidelines.
2) Activation of new sources of growth to sustain economic momentum: This involves the development of domestic demand, economic diversification, broadening the domestic investor base, more efficient leveraging of technology and frugal innovation with an emphasis on productivity increase, stimulating intra-regional – south-south – trade.
