Keynote Speaker Category: Brexit, China, Climate Change, Economics, Future of Europe, Geopolitics, Global impact of Putin's war, Post Pandemic, Ukraine,


Martin Wolf is the chief economics commentator with the Financial Times. In his talks he focusses primarily on the global economy.

At the moment he is predominantly focussing on Putin’s war and its impact on the world, but especially within the eurozone. He believes the invasion of Ukraine  will remake our current world as we know it but at the moment he is uncertain as to the full impact. He believes it demands a concerted global economic response in order to get through it. There are many ramifications, not only the huge surge of refugees across Europe, mainly in Poland but also the loss of exports of cereals, fertilisers and metals from Russia and Ukraine. How the current economic policy will control inflation. The impact of globalisation, with the emergence of geopolitical divisions between the west, on the one hand, and Russia and China, on the other.
