Editorial: Globalisation of Economies and Industries


At the beginning of the 21st century we also experience some drawbacks of globalisation. Yes, it “promotes economic and social advancement”, but the progress is not evenly distributes and not “all peoples” enjoy the benefits of globalisation. Growing interdependency has also brought greater competition, this time reaching much further that just neighbouring countries. 

Therefore, we decided to focus this issue of our journal on exploring the Globalisation of Economies and Industries. We do hope that the articles presented in this issue will inspire further research.
