LONDON -- The world has experienced seismic change since the Nikkei -FT deal was reported in our pink pages. Back in 2015, Donald Trump had not been elected, the Brexit vote had not taken place, talk of a new cold war was wildly premature and a global pandemic was unimaginable.

What have we learned from the coronavirus pandemic? What trends have been accelerated? What will the world look like in five years' time? This report will help to answer these questions. It places the rise of China, climate change action and tech disruption high on the policy agenda over the next few years.
