Europe’s Global Role

Lagging productivity, public deficits, a Euro in the danger zone, an ageing population and rising unemployment levels make that the position of Europe in today’s world economy is under pressure. Is the Indian professor Dipesh Chakrabarty right with his book: ‘Provincializing Europe’?


Lagging productivity, public deficits, a Euro in the danger zone, an ageing population and rising unemployment levels make that the position of Europe in today’s world economy is under pressure.Can we call Europe a peripheral region? As the American author Robert Kaplan does. Is the Indian professor Dipesh Chakrabarty right with his book: ‘Provincializing Europe’?

In this EBR Special you can read that for instance in the US and in Taiwan, one of the Asian tigers, the European Chambers of Commerce are positive about trade with the EU. And also the EU Trade Commissioner Karel de Gucht is not too pessimistic, although in his article he is asking the EU member states to talk with one (his!) voice. Not an easy thing…

N. Peter Kramer, Editor-in-Chief European Business Review


The mission of the European American Chamber of Commerce is to provide its members with timely and relevant information, resources and support on matters affecting business activities between Europe and the U.S.

European American Chamber of Commerce: bridge for business between Europe and the US

European Business Review had the honour of an exclusive interview with Ms. Yvonne Bendinger-Rothschild, Executive Director of the European American Chamber of Commerce in New York.

"Our ability to engage with international companies, select the most promising ones to present in front of our investor community, and train their CEOs so they have a convincing pitch and investor presentation, make it extremely attractive for our investor community to come to our events and cherry pick, as they know we are doing the bulk of the preparation work for them. Then, it′s up to them to decide if the companies are a good fit for their portfolio."

Linking U.S. investment to global innovation

New York City is the dynamic heart of the investor’s world. In this global center, Worldwide Investor Network (WIN) has a special position. European Business Review had the opportunity to ask Mr. Eyal Bino, managing partner of WIN, questions about his company and its position in the market.

"I would like to ensure that what we negotiate is implemented on the ground. With tariffs coming down as a result of trade liberalisation, the real task is about the regulatory barriers for trade, getting access to services and investment, opening public procurement markets, enforcing our companies′ intellectual property rights."

Trade after the crisis: what is Europe′s global role?

Trade flows may have bounced back from pre-crisis levels but the crisis invites us to shift the focus of trade policy. I would argue that the crisis has indeed changed the landscape for trade policy. So, I would like to draw three lessons of the crisis.

Faced with an ageing population, lagging productivity, public deficits and a Euro in the danger zone, Europe must react to avoid economic decline. Global challenges such as rising competition from rapidly emerging markets, climate change and scarce natural resources put Europe further to the test.

Europe in the world: leading or lagging?

The 9th European Business Summit (EBS) – edition 2011 - will focus on Europe’s place in the global economy, today and tomorrow. In which areas is the EU lagging behind and what are the (business) opportunities where it can regain the lead?
