ABOUT THE EVENT
Asia House will be assembling some of the world’s leading thinkers on global trade and investment for a major conference in Dubai on 22 April.
Held in partnership with DMCC, The New Global Trade Order will provide insights and analysis to help business leaders and policymakers better understand – and capitalise on – the new global trade order.
The future of trade
Taking a broad view of the key trends emerging in the global economy, this discussion will explore the challenges and opportunities these present to businesses operating between Europe and the Middle East and the rest of Asia. This panel will offer predictive analysis on both the shifting politics as well as market developments across the global economy. Of particular interest will be the emergence of new trade hubs to service the shifting trade order, and the geographies likely to benefit.
The Belt and Road Initiative
With a specific focus on China’s new approach to infrastructure development beyond their borders through the Belt and Road Initiative, this panel will take stock of the initiative’s progress to date and analyse the associated commercial opportunities and economic impact of the initiative to the Middle East, and Asia more widely.
This discussion will highlight the impact of new technologies and infrastructure development as they enable new forms of connectivity between economies, especially among emerging markets, regional blocs and trade hubs across Asia. Analysis from a range of experts, business leaders and policymakers will identify associated policy challenges and commercial opportunities.
