|In this week’s issue we examine how global capital markets will evolve to 2030, we consider how we can drive towards cleaner road transport, and we invite you to London to discuss the future of the Arctic.|
“Road transport is a key facilitator of trade and access to jobs, services and social interaction in general, but it is also creating visible strains on the environment, on urban space and safety.
José Viegas, Secretary-general, International Transport Forum, OECD
| What are the risks and rewards of operating in the Arctic? With global demand for resources growing, many eyes are on the potential of the Arctic. It has been estimated that the region holds 22% of the world’s undiscovered oil and gas, and it is rich in rare earth minerals. Meanwhile, receding sea ice is opening up possibilities for increased shipping activity.

Taking place on March 4th 2014 in London it will bring together 200 senior-level stakerholders to debate the future of this critical region. |
