Governmental authorities at all levels are significantly affected by a range of global developments, such as the recent financial crisis, urbanisation, demographic challenges and heightened security concerns. Such global development trends shape the strategic plans adopted by governments to foster sustainable economic growth, and ensure the prosperity and well-being of citizens and businesses. Everywhere today, all of us – both within our firm and among our clients – find ourselves in an entirely unfamiliar environment of uncertainty, instability and sweeping change. The new reality is becoming a fact of life and our common future.
Competition between countries, and individual regions and cities is intensifying. The inflow of investment in infrastructure development reveals the global potential and competitive advantages of new economic agglomerations that are appearing on the map of the world. At the same time, cooperation between the public, private and non-profit sectors is taking on a global scale and becoming more active. In this context, government leaders face a number of critical challenges, including managing stakeholder relations and supporting an open dialogue based on trust.
