DHL Global Connectedness Index 2018

Print Share
This report presents the first comprehensive assessment of how globalization--measured based on trade, capital, information, and people flows--has developed since the Brexit referendum in the United Kingdom and the election of President Donald Trump in the United States. Contrary to predictions that globalization would collapse in response to a wave of economic nationalism, the DHL Global Connectedness Index rose to a record high in 2017. For the first time since 2007, trade, capital, information, and people flows all intensified significantly. Strong economic growth boosted international flows while key policy changes such as US tariff increases had not yet been implemented.
