Global Trade and VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity)
Global supply chains are closely interconnected and twinned with cross-border trade.
This event covers the following:
Maritime & Trade

Outbreaking events like trade tension or pandemic, as well as inevitable mega-trends such as climate change, all proved supply chains could be exposed to disruptions. The negative results caused by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity thus could be suffered worldwide.

Nevertheless, from a regional perspective, APAC keeps growing its importance in the global economy in the past few decades, which is reflected in trade statistics, investment flows and hence value chain dynamic. With the recently agreed RCEP, the region could become a key to stimulate regional and even wider economic growth in a post-pandemic era.

In this webinar, we will look from an APAC commodity trade angle, particularly zoom in on RCEP members, by snap shotting some recent trade developments, for example:

• The impact on trade and transport by COVID-19 and how recovery is going for the region?
• The scope of impact from the regional trade agreement to specific industries
• What changes could have been brought by the sustainability agenda?

On the basis of historical and ongoing trade, we would also present the outlook of regional and industrial trade, supported by our GTA forecasting model which has the VUCA and opportunities factors incorporated.
