The year 2020 is one to remember. The corona crisis changed the world at an unprecedented rate and many developments are still ongoing. Existing trends are accelerating, geopolitical relations are under pressure and the way we travel, work and spend our free time has changed radically.
This Annual Report contains food for thought, as we focus on some of the 2020 highlights and on future developments in the world. This can help us to look ahead to a brighter future beyond the gloom of the daily headlines.
At HCSS we do not pretend to know the future, to solve all highly complex problems with our analyses, or to instantaneously improve the relations between nations or mankind in an age of technology breakthroughs. But we expect that our fact-based analyses contribute to an increased understanding of the future path of the world and to provide ideas of how governments, businesses, individuals, and all of us can help to make this world a better and safer place to live in.
The HCSS team wishes you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
