CEOs brace for a dual-imperative world amid China’s reopening
For over two decades, the PwC Annual Global CEO Survey has offered a rare glimpse into the minds of CEOs from all around the world. This year, to celebrate its 26th anniversary, the survey was extended to 105 countries and territories, with responses from 4,410 CEOs.

They will likely find themselves in a new race to ensure business viability and profitability today, while rebalancing priorities to drive sustainable growth for tomorrow.
