World Trade Board

The World Trade Board, initiated by Misys, is made up of global leaders, innovative thinkers, industry influencers and subject matter experts from the different corners of trade, finance and commerce. The members are the co-creators of an organisation that has the objective of shaping the future and of being an enabling force for global trade, inclusion and prosperity.

The Board shares a common vision – of a collaborative, connected, inclusive trade and finance network enabled by the latest business technologies, allowing the world to prosper. The Board, together with Misys, is the driving force behind the annual World Trade Symposium and manages a number of working groups and programs to turn its vision into reality.
