PwC Launches 15th Global CEO Survey Results in Davos, Switzerland

Dennis Nally, Chairman of PricewaterhouseCoopers International, presented some of the key findings of PwC's annual survey of business leaders from around the world at a press briefing in Davos, Switzerland. Nearly half (48%) of CEOs believe the global economy will decline even further in the next 12 months, with just 15% saying the global economy will improve during 2012. However, nearly three times as many CEOs are confident in their own companies' growth prospects for the next 12 months than in the outlook for the global economy, suggesting CEOs believe they have learned how to manage through difficult and volatile economic times. For PwC's 15th Annual Global CEO Survey, 1,258 interviews were conducted in 60 countries in the last quarter of 2011. Available video includes highlights from PwC's press briefing in Davos.
