The Economist’s Global Trade Virtual Week 2021
Global Trade Virtual Week Prosperity powered by trust: technology, data and supply chain resilience June 28th – July 2nd 2021
Bridging the gap between high-level geopolitical debate, digital innovation and the day-to-day realities of managing supply chains and logistics, Global Trade Virtual Week will offer a unique opportunity to advance global trade dialogue and trust between key stakeholders.
Join 150+ trade experts and 4000+ global participants for a week of thought-provoking conversation through case studies, interviews and panel discussions.
Together we will ask:
As liberalism falls out of favour in the West, can the current rules-based order survive the next century?
What have we learned about supply chain resilience?
Is Blockchain the fool’s gold or a panacea for paperless cross-border trade?
Will EU carbon border taxes be a protectionist weapon in a green disguise?
If data is the new oil, should it be valued as a commodity?
How is global trade driving post-pandemic economic recovery and what is the exit strategy for easing Covid-19 export restrictions?
