Building bridges for growth
Davos represents an ideal opportunity for governments and businesses to come together, to think hard about how they can drive benefits for all citizens.
This year’s Davos theme is the “new global context” for decision-making, marked by a continuing erosion of trust in public and private sector institutions and a deteriorating dialogue between government and business globally.
Recovery will not gather momentum without businesses growing and spending. Companies are sitting on cash that could be invested to boost growth, which requires governments to create an attractive environment.
Companies complain that Europe’s political, legal and regulatory environment lacks predictability and consistency. It is time to rethink the relationship between government and business. They need to work together.
