Regions Cities Industry Webinar: Global Value Chains and Regional Recovery after Covid-19

Global Value Chains and Foreign Direct Investment create both opportunities and challenges for cities and regions. The pandemic has deeply affected consolidated internationalisation patterns and the local impacts of these global forces. Regional recovery needs to leverage all possible opportunities offered by the new global order. This calls for a re-consideration of existing policy tools and for evidence-based discussions on policies that work on the ground to promote regional recovery and development.

The Policy Panel will discuss how public policies for cities and regions (including Smart Specialisation) should evolve in response to a global economy in constant transformation and how Global Value Chains and FDI can be successfully leveraged by local policy makers.

Professor Riccardo Crescenzi, London School of Economics, UK
Dr. Austin Kilroy, World Bank, Croatia
Dr. Sara Amoroso, European Commission, Joint Research Centre, Spain
Dr. Alexander Lembcke, OECD, Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities, France

Chair: Dr. Peter Wostner, Institute of Macroeconomic Analysis and Development, Republic of Slovenia
