What worries me is that I see the country being too complacent. Satisfied with mediocrity. As long as there is no bankruptcy, everything is fine and this worries me,” the former minister stressed in statements he made at the “Forbes Annual Summit 2023: Empowering the Future,” held on Tuesday.
Miguel Boyares Maduro, dean of the Católica Global Law School, revealed on Tuesday that he is “very disappointed with the rules of the recovery and resilience plan” and that the country is “very satisfied and satisfied with the average performance.”
“The period when the country has performed worst economically since 1950 has been in the past 25 years, that is, since it joined the euro. We have achieved a slight reduction in inequality, but at the cost of impoverishing society, by bringing average and minimum wages closer together. What “My concern is that I see the country being very complacent. Complacent with mediocrity. As long as there is no bankruptcy, everything is fine and that worries me.”
Miguel Boyares Maduro also emphasized that “the main problem in the country is not the evaluation of its institutions and the entire decision-making process. There is nothing worse for the country than the results of the last PISA test, which were mediocre. It received 10% more media and political attention than the airport. “Education is much more important than the airport.”
The annual Forbes Summit 2023: Empowering the Future takes place on Tuesday, an event that brings together policymakers, business and academics to discuss the role of innovation for a more just and sustainable future. The “Impact Economy and Social Responsibility” panel brought together Nadia Reis, Director of Social Responsibility at Continente – Missão Continente; Carlos Oliveira, CEO of the José Neves Foundation and Miguel Boyares de Maduro, Dean of the Católica International School of Law.
Carlos Oliveira, CEO of the José Nieves Foundation, stressed that “there is a role for the state and private entities in social responsibility. It must be integrated into a parallel business and initiative. Integrating ESG standards throughout a company’s activity is what needs to happen to improve performance within the company.
Digital transformation as a mechanism that may entail the elimination of jobs is something that needs to be looked at differently, according to the analysis of Nadia Reis, Director of Social Responsibility at Continente – Missão Continente at the event. The Sonae framework gave as an example Continente’s “self-examination” system: “It is not about eliminating jobs but responding to customer needs and redirecting employees to other tasks. We have to review our educational policy to prepare young people for new jobs.” The person in charge also gave as an example 30 million Personalized post created by technology “which we have at our disposal to predict purchasing behaviour”.
Regarding social responsibility, Nadia Reis highlights that “consumers have other interests and in-depth knowledge of the entire value chain inherent in production, and this role is fundamental for organizations today. It is not enough to invite customers to our stores, we must engage customers in our values.
