Credit Suisse Chief Executive Tidjane Thiam sees market conditions improving during 2017 as the bank's reorganization gathers pace and its efficiency drive continues. Thiam told Bloomberg TV in an interview from Davos on Tuesday that "After a year in 2016 where you saw revenues really go down (across the sector)...hopefully 2017 will be better but all this is markets permitting," he said. "We have seen across the world the benefits of globalization…but we have also seen the tensions. The cracks in the system which then found a political translation," said the CEO of Switzerland's second-largest bank.

China's President, Xi Jinping, says that economic globalization has powered worldwide growth and should not be blamed for the world's problems. In an attack on the anti-globalization rhetoric, Xi told a packed audience at the World Economic Forum at Davos on Tuesday: "It is true that economic globalization created new problems but this is no justification to write off economic globalization altogether", and he added that “Pursing protectionism is just like locking oneself in a dark room". He stressed the challenges as well of the benefits of economic globalisation and that the process needed to be made more “invigorated, inclusive and sustainable”.
British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to say on Tuesday that she favours a clean break from the European Union, dismissing a "half-in, half-out" Brexit deal with Brussels. In a highly anticipated speech, May is likely to give further signals that Britain is heading to what analysts call a "hard" Brexit. It is thought the Prime Minister is ready to take Britain out of the European single market and customs union, though it remained unclear whether she will give a definitive answer on the question.
