PUBLIC STATEMENT

ConnectINg St. Gallen held a Summit on March 29, 2019 in St. Gallen during which the following topics were discussed : 1)  How Can Countries Contribute to the Opening of the Markets, 2) Global Trade in 2019 and Trump’s Trade War – Back to National Economies ?, and 3) How Can a Manager Take the Changing Macro-Economic Trend into Account ?

 

The participants tried to express one single statement on the most important message to take out of the Summit, and they came to the following conclusion:

 

"As students in Business, Economics and Political Science of the University of St. Gallen, we think that it is of the utmost importance to close existing communication gaps between the different actors (firms, academics, politics as well as people most affected by the ongoing opening of markets).

 

We thus encourage firms to take the macroeconomic environment into account when making decisions and macro-economists to consider firms’ decision making processes and their consequences on individuals when making policy decisions."
