Business/Geography: Examining Global Trends – The Business Location Paradox With Professor Naresh Pandit From University of East Anglia
November 8 @ 14:00 - 14:45
In this Business/Geography webinar for schools and colleges, Professor Naresh Pandit from the University of East Anglia will deliver a topic-based talk on The Business Location Paradox.
We live in world where businesses can source capital, goods and services, information, and technology from around the world, often with a simple click of a mouse. It is reasonable to think that more open global markets and faster transportation and communication should diminish the importance of where you do business. However, paradoxically, recent research on industrial clusters shows that the most significant competitive advantages in a global economy lie increasingly in local things that distant rivals cannot match. So, for the most productive businesses, business location now matters more not less!
This short interactive session will examine and explain this paradox using current examples.
