As global economic conditions were gradually normalizing in 2022, the onset of the Russo-Ukrainian war unleashed new-found global volatility. Global commodity prices have surged, with heightened disruptions to global trade and fragile supply chains. Uncertainty regarding the longevity of sanctions has created a challenging environment for businesses. Against this backdrop, the Think Tank aims to shed light on the economic implications of the war on 2022 GDP growth, inflation, and energy market dynamics that can help businesses navigate short-term uncertainties. Based on a thorough assessment of global macroeconomic conditions, the discussion will cull out real-time insights into reorientation strategies and government policy priorities that businesses can leverage to insulate from the current war and future geopolitical shocks.
