​​​​​​​Theme: Recession Matters: Labour Market, Trade And The Role Of Geopolitics


Key Highlights: Our August 2022 of Expert's Forum is now published. Two of the leading economists of the Indo-Pacific Region shares their insightful views on the theme, and more.

A recession is usually defined as a business cycle contraction when there is a general decline in economic activity. It may last for months or even years impacting multiple thematic areas including labour market, skills development, trade, business and community. The social and economic costs of recessions can be large and persistent. It has happened before and there are many known challenges. During these phases, there is a general tendency to develop a negative sentiment both at the micro as well as the macro levels, which might eventually prolong the period of recession. With a learned and proactive approach, could we not shorten the phase of recession and help revive the economy sooner? What role could geopolitics play in this context to make things better for all?

​​​​​​​Theme: No Safe Haven: Relooking Into The Business & Economic Goals While De-coding The Recipe Of Not Loosing Track


Key Highlights: Our Dec 2022 of Expert's Forum is now published. Leading  experts from three continents shares their insightful views on the theme, and more.

This year has been extraordinarily turbulent. Globally, for businesses and economies it was time to realise that there is no safe haven for them and that they have to constantly build strength while looking out for methods to adapt to not only the Post-COVID business requirements, renewed stakeholder expectations but also traverse through the consequent chaos that these never-seen-before situations are posing. 

Here is a list of twenty one mind-streching keywords that we have come across this year (not in any chronological order)-
post-COVID world, macroeconomic downturn, budget and cash flow, inflation, interest rates, job cuts, recession, cooling housing market, lower consumer confidence, trade, cross-border collaborations, geopolitics, supply chain disruption, integrity and tranparency, public money management, digital economy, climate action, data security, war, re-skilling workforce and hybrid workplaces. 

Given that the businesses and economies will not remain stagnant but will move ahead innovating newer methods to survive, seizing opportunities to put themselves back on the growth trajectory, we plan to ponder and free-wheel as to how have you dealt with the some of the above and the future you envision.
In the above context, thus, we discuss and analyse- "No Safe Haven: Relooking Into The Business & Economic Goals While De-coding The Recipe Of Not Loosing Track"

​​Aei4eiA's Research Snippets: Experts Forum

Snippets on Manpower & Labour Market, HR & Business matters based on Aei4eiA’s research work and experts' opinion.

​Now-a-days, we often hear the following- a) the global socio-economic landscape is changing fast- much faster than anyone would have comprehended even half a decade ago; b) Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity-VUCA, is the new normal and c) the Indo-pacific-region is the new global growth engine and is playing a significant role in establishing the new world order. 

On a regular basis, new issues and challenges are emerging that the business leaders, policy makers and others in the field were unfamiliar with in the past. Global bodies, strategists and change-makers are ever exploring ways to manage the dynamism while stabilising the present and securing the future.
