This list is not by any by any means complete However, here are 10 things you should be watching in 2023:

1.) Vladimir Putin has very little to show for the past 10 months of conflict in Ukraine. However, this doesn’t mean that the war will be over soon. In fact, as we move beyond winter, the fighting could increase on the surface, and the need to replenish the weapons stock is vital. There’s currently no reason to Ukrainian the president Volodymyr Zelenskiy to engage in negotiations particularly when Zelenskiy insists that he must return the occupied territories as well as Crimea which was annexed by Russia in 2014. Do the US insist on him doing that? In addition, there’s no obvious motive at home for Putin to engage in diplomacyor, if anything the hardliners could make him do it.

2.) Although US president Joe Biden is heavily engaged in assisting Ukraine however, his primary concern is his relationships with China. The two largest economies in the world are still trying to figure out an effective way to maneuver around each one without hitting each other.  that pulls multiple countries in, including the US.

3) Xi Jinping’s issues have been increasing in China. The Chinese president has secured his office for another term. However, after adhering to strict Covid rules for a long time, his sudden decision to change his mind has sent China into chaos with the escalating number of viral cases, and disruptions to companies and supply chains. The time the time it will take Xi to guide his country out of the blizzard could have a significant impact on the global economy this year.

4.) Economics statecraft one of the terms you’re likely to be hearing more about this year. This isn’t just about China and the US, or the US and China or that of the US and Russia also. Many countries are using tools for regulation and trade (and sometimes, assistance from military) to guide their goals in geopolitics and to influence the actions of other countries. This can affect everything from the availability of high-tech chips to the global effort to tackle climate changes. In recent times, we’re seeing it expand to the control and access to energy resources, too.

5) The world’s nations are studying the conflict in Ukraine in real-time as they evaluate what’s been efficient in regards to the military’s command and control as well as in terms of weaponry. Artillery that is humble has proven its strength when paired with drones, as an example. As countries all the way from Japan to Germany increase their defense expenditures Many may alter their structure and military expenditure due to. This could also result in an overhaul of the larger machinery of procurement, and how fast (or better, how slow) defense contractors can ramp up or shift production.
