2024, the Year of the Dragon, is already providing plenty of reason for turbulence: the conflict in Palestine beginning to ripple into the global economy, a possible rematch between President Joe Biden and his predecessor Donald Trump, and a renewed threat from Beijing to annex the self-governing island of Taiwan. Economic turbulence and volatility are unlikely to fade, but business leaders, investors, consumers and policymakers are likely to find better balance in a world where inflation, labor markets, fiscal and monetary policy, technology and financial markets are still front of mind.

With the hope of a new state of balance to global economies, on the morning of Monday, April 15, our experts will guide BCCJ members and guests on what to expect in the fiscal year ahead.
