Nowadays, there are many indicators that state that the post-covid world will be less global, contrary to what trends had hitherto pointed out. The world economy seems to have begun the path to deglobalization, which implies a reversal of interdependence, mainly in trade, but also social, cultural, and technological between countries.

This generates a great Globalization / Deglobalization debate that impacts on multiple sectors. Any company or organization with an international vocation will have to face this dilemma. Therefore, in this session, we want to analyze the current state of globalization and its impact in three key areas: logistics, politics and economics.

To do so, on May 5, at 3.30 pm, we will have three experts who will share their opinion and discuss the advantages or disadvantages of moving towards an unstoppable globalization or, on the contrary, to reaffirm local and culture of proximity.
