Around the World in 80 Minutes – Impact of Corona Crisis on Trade
September 24, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am
Join USCIB’s partners around the world – Confederation of Swedish Enterprise, Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Business Unity South Africa, National Confederation of Industry Brazil (CNI), Keidanren (Japan) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on a virtual trip around the world for 80 minutes and listen to and interact with business representatives from six continents. They will share their experiences of trade in a Corona stricken world and discuss how buzzwords like reshoring, sovereignty and diversification might shape the future of global trade. Our moderator is Soumaya Keynes, trade & globalization editor at The Economist.
The Coronavirus outbreak is having a devastating impact on businesses. Apart from dealing with the virus itself, businesses have also had to deal with closed borders, lockdowns, export restrictions and many other issues. We have seen how containers getting stuck in China have caused disruptions in the U.S. and how closed factories in one part of the world are affecting others. This is a global crisis, with global repercussions, and to understand the long term consequences we need to look beyond our own regions.
