Our world is in transition. We no longer live in an era of change, but
are witnessing the change of an era. We see the challenges every day, around us and in the media: climate change, population growth in the cities, digitisation, the emergence of new economies and global powers and the pending exhaustion of our natural resources. Together they pose the greatest challenge to our society since the nineteenth century. That demands a fundamental change to the way we manage our society and our economy.
A roadmap to the next economy
Our journey is called the Roadmap Next Economy (RNE). It includes an integrated assessment of the impact of relevant global trends, resulting in a long term strategy and highly adaptable action program for our regional economy that will stimulate the transition to the next economy, and create an attractive business environment for talents, companies and investors, new business and jobs.
