The Future of Industrial Strategies Initiative

Changing global context is challenging traditional approaches to Industrial Strategies

The advent of global trends like digitalization, sustainability, and evolving consumption habits have brought about numerous changes that are reshaping the way economies develop, how businesses internationalize, and which industries grow and decline. In anticipation of these international movements, a new generation of industrial strategies and policies is needed. Governments from both developed and developing countries alike would need to rethink new ways in approaching socio-economic development in refreshing and/or building up the resiliency of their industrial sectors.

To meet this goal, the Forum and its network of partners, aims to put forth new frameworks and tools that will help inform and guide the development of future-ready industrial strategies and policies.
