Global Trade Virtual Week

The World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) is a proud partner of the upcoming Global Trade Virtual Week, hosted by The Economist Events.

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.

Convening policymakers, government representatives, trade leaders and supply-chain experts, together we will explore how global trade is driving post-pandemic economic recovery, assess the exit strategy for easing COVID-19 export restrictions, and identify solutions to build supply-chain resilience for a post-pandemic world.

Join 120+ trade experts and 4,000+ 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 favor 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?
