Global Brain in the Great Convergence Era
June 26, 2013
We have been witnessing the powershift in the last decades. The previous paradigm stating West dominates the world has shifted to the great convergence of East and West. The emergence of China as a new world business power has changed the landscape of the global business competition. The financial tsunami that hit European countries and United States of America has accelerated the pendulum of favorability movement to the East. The prominent players in South Korea are inevitable to invade the world through their glorious advancement in various sectors: electronics, automotive, up to entertainment. India is taking its own path to the future; keep running to appear as the home of the science and technology-based manufacturing sector. Of course, keep counting Japan still in. It will keep maintaining its existence as the world economic power.
For some powerhouses in the East, the challenges are obvious; they have to stay competitive or even surpass their counterparts in the West. R&D, innovation, global networking becomes pivotal strategy for them. While the future of big players in the East is promising, the big question is whether or not the same thing happens to the rest. Can players in emerging economies take advantage of the current momentum of the powershift? How can they widen out their business horizons so that they can find the right opportunities to develop? How can they realize those business opportunities? After all, in the current networked world, how can they harness the power of Global Brain to sustain their profitable growth?
To find the answers to all those questions, Prasetiya Mulya Business School with its global scholar network initiates a half day event presenting prominent speakers to deliver their valuable thoughts. This annual event is a part of Prasetiya Mulya’s tradition and high commitment to always advancing business knowledge &practice. Business leaders from various industry sectors, academics, and policymakers are expected to come and get involved in a meaningful dialog of the event.
