Agenda 2019

Global trade is in a state of upheaval, driven by protectionism, ever-increasing regulations and outdated trading systems. Technology is disrupting trade like never before, making processes more efficient and inclusive, breaking down barriers and opening new markets. These present new challenges—and new opportunities.

The World Trade Symposium will convene business leaders, technology innovators, policymakers, thought leaders and economists to analyse these issues and suggest solutions and outcomes. What is needed to drive open trade for the benefit of all involved?

Sessions will take a deep dive into the new technologies and platforms that are opening up trade and identify the opportunities presented by changing trends, as well as exploring how shifting consumer priorities are affecting the sustainability agenda. Attendees won’t just be debating key issues and swapping their stories, but will explore new ideas and solutions.
