Here’s a look at what’s coming up this week.

ENERGY INDUSTRY

Global executives will discuss climate change and other issues.

Global energy executives — and the consultants, academics and news media who follow them — will gather in Houston this week for the annual CERAWeek energy conference, sponsored by the consulting firm IHS Markit. Speakers include Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada; the Saudi Arabian energy minister, Khalid A. Al-Falih; and the Russian energy minister, Alexander Novak. Many chief executives, including the heads of Exxon Mobil and Chevron, will speak about a variety of issues, including climate change and new energy technologies. But much of the most serious business, the deal-making, will be done behind closed doors. Clifford Krauss

AUTO INDUSTRY

Trade will be a big question at a car showcase in Geneva.

The Geneva International Motor Show, one of the most important showcases for European carmakers, will open to the news media on Tuesday. Aside from new models, the focus at the show will be on how trade barriers could add to the industry’s already formidable challenges. Carmakers are alarmed by President Trump’s threats to tax imports from Mexico, where companies like Volkswagen have large factories. In Europe, “Brexit” could complicate sales to Britain. Industry executives will also debate the repercussions of PSA Peugeot Citroën’s expected acquisition of the General Motors Opel unit, which would create Europe’s biggest challenger to Volkswagen. The Motor Show will open to the public on Thursday and continue through March 19. Jack Ewing

TECHNOLOGY

A German court is poised to rule on a refugee’s Facebook suit.

A German state court is expected on Tuesday to announce its ruling in the case of a Syrian refugee who is demanding that Facebook prevent users from reposting a selfie he took with Chancellor Angela Merkel in 2015. The image, of the refugee, Anas Modamani, with the chancellor, initially came to symbolize the German leader’s decision to let hundreds of thousands of unscreened migrants into Germany. But more recently, manipulated versions have shown up in fake news reports linking Mr. Modamani to terrorism. Melissa Eddy

LEGAL

Samsung’s leader is set to go on trial.

The bribery trial of Lee Jae-yong, the de facto leader of Samsung, is scheduled to begin in a South Korean court on Thursday. Prosecutors and the South Korean news media were already declaring the case the “trial of the century,” with the potential to lay bare longstanding collusion between politicians and powerful family-controlled conglomerates. Mr. Lee’s arrest last month was an outgrowth of corruption allegations against South Korea’s president, Park Geun-hye, who was impeached by Parliament in December. Mr. Lee is accused of buying political favors by paying $36 million in bribes to a secretive confidante of Ms. Park. Jonathan Soble

ECONOMY

The European Central Bank is to meet.

The Governing Council of the European Central Bank will meet in Frankfurt on Thursday amid calls for it to begin withdrawing its stimulus to the eurozone economy. After inflation in the eurozone hit the official target of 2 percent in February, economists in Germany said it was time to begin dialing back purchases of government bonds and other measures aimed at lowering market interest rates. The central bank is not expected to act yet, since the spike in inflation was due almost entirely to temporary increases in energy and food prices. But at a news conference after the meeting, Mario Draghi, the European Central Bank president, will face pressure to justify the central bank’s loose money policies. Jack Ewing

A February increase in jobs is anticipated.

On Friday at 8:30 a.m., the Labor Department is scheduled to release its report on the nation’s hiring and unemployment for February. While analysts are not expecting this latest report to register as many job gains as January’s, which said 227,000 had been added, the consensus points to a healthy monthly increase of 185,000.

Some of the suspense surrounding the release was lifted Friday by the Federal Reserve chairwoman, Janet L. Yellen. The unemployment figures — particularly those that come out right before the Fed’s policy-making committee meets — can have a big impact on the central bank’s decision to shift its benchmark interest rate. But Ms. Yellen made clear in a speech in Chicago that only a huge upset would dissuade the Fed from raising rates this month. The unemployment rate is expected to tick back down to 4.7 percent from its current 4.8 percent. After a disappointing 0.1 percent increase in average hourly wages in January, economists are looking for a more robust 0.3 percent rise. Patricia Cohen
