      Executive summary

01-10-2019 18:30 - Penny Goldberg, Chief Economist, World Bank, on Globalisation and Development

Other event - EPRS

The Chief Economist of the World Bank, Penny Goldberg, will discuss global economic trends and give a preview of the World Bank's forthcoming flagship report, 'The World Development Report 2020', at an EPRS policy roundtable to be held on Tuesday 1 October, at 18:30-19:45 hours, in the European Parliament's Library Reading Room.

More details

As international economic growth is constrained by U.S.-China trade tension, the volatility of oil prices and other factors, the World Bank report, due for publication in early 2020, will focus on the implications for development of globalisation in general and global value chains in particular. It will explore why some regions benefit substantially from their participation in global value chains and others much less. The event forms part of a series of EPRS-World Bank policy roundtables to be held over the coming year.

Hearings

Under Rule 193 of the Rules of Procedure, a committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes, posters and contributions from speakers.

Workshops
