SESSION A: Geopolitical Impacts

to Trade Flows

7/29 | 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Avenue Ballroom

This panel will explore the forces that are reordering global supply chains ​and trade relations, with particular emphasis on the role of geopolitical ​competition, national security, industrial policy, climate change, and ​human rights. The discussion will focus on the way liberal economic ​orthodoxy has come under pressure in the US, and what that means for ​trade policy and practice at home and abroad. The panel will, additionally, ​examine the adaptive strategies companies have implemented to mitigate ​trade risk and enhance transactional certainty (nearshoring, reshoring, ​operational engineering, China + 1, etc.).The panel will conclude by ​considering the immediate and intermediate-term implications of the ​transformative dynamics that now characterize the international trade ​environment.
