The fourth industrial revolution is changing the world before our very eyes. Digitization is seeping through all levels of society, in particular business and the economy. The scope of innovation is endless, but the expected growth through job creation still leaves much to be desired. Join us as we welcome Koen De Leus, chief economist at BNP Paribas Fortis and author of The Winners Economy. We will discuss the book’s main findings, drawn in part from a series of extensive interviews with CEOs and policy makers in Belgium and abroad.
