WEBINAR: With 20/20 vision: what could we expect from global trade in 2021?

About this Event

The global trade scene in 2020 was disrupted as perhaps never before, particularly due to the pandemic and a trade war. Value and supply chains were confronted with multiple challenges against a background of tectonic shifts. Trade volumes declined and the outlook is cloudy.

While uncertainty remains, recent developments in the US, Europe and Asia may indicate that there are grounds for hoping that 2021 will be better.

Are we about to witness a false dawn, or can we realistically expect more positive news? What are the practical opportunities for getting trade back on track, and where do the pitfalls lie?

Following the successful launch of the HB Trade Miniseries of online discussions in December 2020, join us for the second online discussion in our Trade Miniseries to discuss this timely topic.

Speakers:
– H.E. Igor Driesmans, EU Ambassador to ASEAN

– Hosuk Lee-Makiyama, Director of ECIPE & Senior Fellow at LSE

– Daniel Crosby, Geneva Office Managing Partner, King & Spalding LLP

Moderated by Stuart Harbinson, Senior Adviser on International Trade, Hume Brophy
