09:30  Introduction 
           Opening remarks by Carlo Thelen, General Director Chambre de Commerce Luxembourg

09:45  Global Economic Outlook: Global expansion: robust yet fragile
            Gabriel Sterne, Head of Global Macro Research, Oxford Economics 

  • Inflation, unfavourable policies, and tightening liquidity make markets nervous
  • Pockets of credit risk and low bank profitability pose dangers to the financial system
  • Expansions don’t die of old age, but age can foster fragilities; warning lights are on amber
  • Trade wars quite damaging to date; but its the escalation scenarios that would be very damaging

10:30  European Economic Outlook: Domestic resilience keeps ECB on normalisation path
            Oliver Rakau, Lead Eurozone Economist and Chief German Economist, Oxford Economics

  • Strong labour market bolsters domestic demand outlook
  • ECB remains on course to the QE exit
  • Slowing global trade and US trade wars threaten exporters

11:15  Coffee break 

11:30  Equities, Asset Prices and Investment Strategies: A fork in the road for global investors
           Gaurav Saroliya, Director of Global Macro Strategy, Oxford Economics                  

  • After confidently buying the US equity dip this year, we see a fork in the road
  • One path leads to more synchronous growth and recovery in non-US markets (better than 50% probability)
  • But another leads to a further weakening of global risk appetite (40% probability)
  • But these probabilities aren’t static and the scores are shifting fast

12:15  Closing remarks
           Serge Allegrezza, General Director STATEC 

12:30  Drinks reception and finger food

Kooperationsmessen sind für Unternehmen eine einfache Möglichkeit, die Aktivitäten über die heimischen und regionalen Märkte hinaus auszuweiten. Statt dutzende Geschäftsreisen zu unternehmen, um nachhaltige Kontakte zu knüpfen, können KMU durch die Teilnahme an einer Kooperationsmesse an einem einzigen Ort mehrere gezielte und individuelle Treffen mit Unternehmen vereinbaren, die an einer Partnerschaft interessiert sind. Mit dem „b2fair“-Konzept können die Unternehmen überdies von der sinnvollen Kombination aus internationaler Messen und B2B-Plattform profitieren, die das Besondere an dieser Initiative ist.
