Globalization represents the global integration of international trade, investment, information technology, and cultures. It is driven by government policies designed to open up economies domestically and internationally to boost development in poorer countries and raise standards of living for their people.
Some proponents say globalisation creates new markets and wealth, and promotes greater cultural and social integration by eliminating barriers; on the other hand, some critics blame the elimination of barriers for undermining national policies and cultures and destabilizing advanced labour markets in favour of lower-cost wages elsewhere. Similarly, some proponents point to the rising economies of poor countries benefiting from companies moving operations there to minimize costs; some critics say such moves could lower living standards in developed countries by eliminating jobs.
A globalization speaker can offer insights in a vast variety of topics such as, emerging markets, building and expanding a global presence, cultivating a global culture, selling internationally, global leadership and more.
