GEOPOLITICS, GLOBAL ECONOMY & COMMERCE – HEADING INTO A NEW ERA
With vaccines becoming more widely available, economies and societies are expected to gradually open-up, which translates into more robust economic and commercial activity around the world. A new administration in the US is expected to follow different policies when it comes to international relations, global trade and commerce and environmental regulations. Access to global markets is key for shipping in fulfilling its vital role as the artery of global trade. Over 90% of global trade is transported by ships. This panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities of the new phase the world is entering and what it means for shipping.
