The launch of a DMCC/Future Agenda report on the Future of Trade

The Future of Trade – DMCC

The DMCC, a leader in global trade, teamed up with the Future Agenda programme to explore the future of trade during 2015. Expert workshops were held in the UK, South Africa, Hong Kong and Dubai. The results, including additional research examining how technology will affect trade, will be presented simultaneously at the Google Campus in London and Google AstroLabs in Dubai on March 17, 2016.

An expert panel chaired by Ian King of Sky News will examine how the digitisation of trade around the world will unlock future opportunity and change the global flow of goods, talent and finance while considering the impact on supply chain efficiency and international regulation. The panelists will include Gautam Sashittal, chief executive officer of DMCC, Baroness Wheatcroft, non-executive director of Fiat Chrysler and former editor of The Wall Street Journal Europe and Simon Williams, Chief Economist Middle East, Africa and Europe at HSBC.
