Over the past few decades, the world’s economic centre of gravity has shifted, moving eastwards. According to recent calculations, from its virtual position in the Atlantic Ocean in the early 2000s, it is forecasted to be located somewhere between China, India and Pakistan by 2030. In this context, what role have emerging-market multinationals played in shaping the new economic geography? And how will COVID-19 impact their future prospects? 

The ascent of emerging-market multinationals is at the centre of Cornell University’s Emerging Markets Report (EMR) series - a focus based on the premise that large, profitable and innovative firms should and do contribute to the development of their respective markets. This Dev Talk will be an opportunity to debate the fulfilled and unfulfilled expectations of these firms in Asia, Africa and Latin America, looking at their roles nationally, regionally and globally, in the post-COVID-19 landscape.
