LONDON, 9th December 2021 – Trade Finance Global is pleased to announce that it will be a media partner for the World Trade Symposium 2022 taking place on the 31st of March 2022.

The World Trade Symposium is the central point for leaders in the global trade and supply chain ecosystem to connect, collaborate, and reimagine the marketplaces of tomorrow.

The past 18 months have seen the rules on global trade rewritten. The profound digital transformation that was already underway has accelerated, slashing costs and reforging supply chains – with innovative shippers, banks, trading blocs, and fintechs leading the way.

As a result, all governments, businesses, and trade practitioners now face the urgent task of understanding the technology trends, and the practical and policy challenges involved in grasping the opportunity of digital trade.

Alongside this, policymakers and non-governmental organisations forecast that digital technologies and standards will open trade to millions more small and micro-enterprises across the world, cementing a new path to global prosperity.

The World Trade Symposium 2022 will bring together top executives and leading global policymakers for a day of rigorous discussion and debate on these critical issues.

The event will reassess the new “trade lines” created by the pandemic, explore the scope and impact of digital trade technologies, and evaluate the opportunities and challenges ahead.

The audience will hear from innovators, businesses, and policymakers, learn about practical solutions, and build networks with global leaders and innovators, who will help showcase the benefits of digitalisation from their own organisations.

Now in its seventh year, the World Trade Symposium promises to deliver unmissable insights on what matters most in global trade today.

To hear more about the key themes of this year’s symposium, listen to our latest podcast with Iain MacLennan, head of trade and supply chain finance at Finastra, who talks about the challenge of delivering frictionless, borderless trade finance to SMEs through digitalisation.
