Global Business Leaders Conference Europe: What Works!

10 November 2015, Vienna, Austria

Building European Competitiveness Through Effective Capital and Talent Markets

INSEAD Global Business Leaders Conference 2014 took place in June 2014 in Sintra-Linhó, Portugal.

In spite of recession and financial turmoil, Europe is still host to the world’s largest trading bloc, with 21 million European companies catering to 175 million jobs and supplying more than 500 million consumers. However, some important challenges lie ahead, such as the effectiveness of European capital and labour markets in allocating financial resources and talent to the most productive enterprises and opportunities.

These two dimensions of market effectiveness have not only been pointed out by a recent INSEAD Survey on European Competitiveness as the areas that should concentrate most of Europe’s efforts to remain competitive with other advanced and emerging economies. They have also played a central role in the life and work of António Borges (1949-2013), Dean of INSEAD from 1993 to 2000 and one of the most successful Portuguese economists.
