    Mr Mark Thirlwell, Chief Economist, Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade)

    The world economy is changing. In the near-term, dramatic political developments over the past year or so have seen measures of global economic policy uncertainty soar to their highest level in two decades. But behind the current newspaper headlines, there are also profound structural shifts underway that are helping to reshape both national and international economic opportunities in fundamental ways. Key forces for change include the evolving nature of globalisation and the growing role of digital and information flows; the impact of technology and innovation in the form of Industry 4.0 and the spread of automation; and the steady unfolding of a period of major demographic change. The presentation will review these changes and examine how they are influencing the demand for skills and education as economies seek to build their human capital base in order to prosper in this challenging environment.
