Economic Security in a Turbulent World

Where: Sydney, Australia

When: June 19th – June 20th, 2024

Description: The tension between security and prosperity is greater now than it has been in generations. Governments, societies and businesses face complex, intersecting risks from rising geopolitical tensions and economic fragmentation, while simultaneously navigating profound revolutions in energy and digital technologies. Policies being implemented in Washington, Beijing, Brussels, Tokyo and elsewhere reflect assumptions starkly different from those that propelled ever deeper globalization over recent decades, as more and more nations seek to “derisk” areas of economic vulnerability and build strategic and competitive advantage in key sectors and technologies.Several governments have adopted formal “economic security” strategies and old boundaries that separated national security and international economic policy have largely dissolved. The COVID-19 pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have further accelerated the search for national resilience and economic security in global capitals.

The first-of-its-kind conference in Australia will bring together experts and senior officials working on an ever-expanding economic security agenda that encompasses industrial policy in strategic industries, supply chain resilience measures, energy security, critical technologies policy, economic sanctions, export controls, investment screening and anti-economic coercion measures.Economic security in a turbulent world will highlight the policy choices and trade-offs facing governments and businesses as they seek to manage risk and build resilience in the face of increasing geopolitical instability and economic volatility. It promises to be one of Australia’s premier business-relevant conferences of 2024.

Institution: The United States Studies Centre, Sydney Australia
