CONTEXT

Over recent years, the world has seen a number of technological developments that have challenged the way our economies function. New technologies have brought dramatic changes in the way firms produce goods and services, organize their activities, and collaborate within innovation ecosystems. Nevertheless, these innovations have not yet translated into shared prosperity. Inequality is increasing and productivity growth remains sluggish in many of the advanced and emerging economies. Therefore, it is essential to understand the underlying factors of disruptive technologies and how policy can use them to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth.

 

OBJECTIVE

The 3rd Annual Conference of the Global Forum on Productivity — co-organised with the Bank of Canada and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada — will bring together senior policy-makers, high-level academics and experts to address some of the leading questions on these themes. The Conference will explore (i) the policy and economic implications from new technologies, (ii) structural changes from disruptive technologies, (iii) technology creation, adoption and impacts on institutions, (iv) intangibles, skills and disruptive technologies and (iv) the state of knowledge on the productivity slowdown. In addition, this 3rd Conference will be an opportunity to assess the extent to which the Global Forum on Productivity has helped uncover the factors behind the productivity slowdown.
