World Trade Symposium

The World Trade Symposium is a unique, global forum for world business, policy and technology leaders to connect, collaborate and re-imagine tomorrow’s market places. Into its fourth year, the Symposium takes place in New York and welcomes innovative thinkers, industry experts and influential decision makers and experts who will debate issues and opportunities for global trade.

Trade Finance Global is delighted to announce a Media Partnership with Finastra and The Economist at the World Trade Symposium, this November, in New York.

Open Trade in an Uncertain World

Global trade is in a state of upheaval, driven by protectionism, ever-increasing regulations and outdated trading systems. Technology is disrupting trade like never before, making processes more efficient and inclusive, breaking down barriers and opening new markets. These present new challenges—and new opportunities.

The World Trade Symposium will convene business leaders, technology innovators, policymakers, thought leaders and economists to analyse these issues and suggest solutions and outcomes. What is needed to drive open trade for the benefit of all involved?
