For PPI members in (or visiting) the San Francisco Bay Area on May 4th, we are pleased to share information about an upcoming program of the World Affairs Council of Northern California, Connectivity for the New World Order, with Parag Khanna, Senior Research Fellow, Centre on Asia and Globalisation, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore. Mr. Khanna spoke to the participants of the Asia Roundtable in Tokyo last year. PPI members receive $10 off The World Affairs Council's non-member price when they enter the promo code PPIGlobal at registration.
Conventional wisdom says that the world is getting smaller. Thanks to advances in transportation, energy and communications, people all over the world are connected to each other like never before. Previously isolated nations are now accessible to the outside world and nations' economies are now dependent on those of other nations. What does this connectivity mean for the future? Will wars be fought more over supply chains than territory? Will increased connectivity make trade routes and power grids more important than borders? Join us for a discussion with global strategist Parag Khanna, who will offer insights into the new challenges and opportunities of our connected world.
