The CABC invites members and partners to attend the Economist’s Asia Trade Week (22-25 Feb 2021).
Covid-19 has hit trade hard. Trade was growing at roughly twice the rate of global GDP but the shock to supply and demand has massively disrupted global value chains and further exposed the vulnerabilities of the international trade system. 2021 heralds change. From US-China relations to Brexit and the Asia Pacific’s economic integration, these trends will undoubtedly shape trade in new and unforeseen ways. How significant will those changes be? What is the outlook for trade in Asia over the next 5-10 years? What are the implications for SMEs? And should companies rethink their manufacturing bases, supply chains and customer focus?
Throughout the week of February 22nd 2021, a global audience and world-class speakers will examine the future of global trade with a focus on Asia. Transformed into a hybrid event, Asia Trade Week 2021 will deliver a dynamic 4 days of networking, online panel discussions and masterclasses including 5 sessions streamed from Singapore, Shanghai, Tokyo and Hong Kong. Join 850+ business leaders; trade negotiators; policymakers; academics and economists for a week of rigorous discussion into the major factors that will shape the future of trade in Asia and beyond.
