After the Perfect Storm: Competitive Forces Shaping the Auto Industry
The U.S. auto industry has recently experienced its worst downturn in memory as all major markets around the world slowed down at the onset of the global recession. Two of the Detroit carmakers were near death until the U.S. government rescued them. As conditions return to normalcy, this conference focuses on the question of which factors will shape the industry's competitiveness going forward. What will the North American auto industry look like in 2020? The conference features keynote addresses by Steve Rattner, former Counselor to the Secretary, U.S. Department of the Treasury; Tom Stallkamp, Industrial Partner, Ripplewood Holdings; and Bob King, Vice President, UAW. There will also be sessions on the following topics:
- The current state of the auto industry
- Industry competitiveness
- Regulation of automobiles and financing of innovation
