CEPS: Global Trends to 2035 – the emerging markets’ challenge to the EU

While others merely looking ahead to 2019, Daniel Gros and his colleagues at CEPS recently published a report looking at global trends to 2035

They conclude that global growth will continue to be led by China, India and other emerging markets. The relative importance of the European Union will therefore shrink, which challenges it to step up its efforts to keep up on technology. It also finds that despite widespread concern about inequality, it has not in fact risen within the EU.  

The report, written for the European Parliamentary Research Service, traces recent changes in economic and societal trends and addresses their implications for EU policy.
