Against the global backdrop of prolonged international trade uncertainties, businesses are faced with increasing pressures to re-design their existing global value chain so as to remain viable and stay ahead. What is certain in these uncertain times is that businesses and the team of executives behind are now required to understand international trade laws and industry practices and more critically to apply these understandings in the unique contexts of their respective business.

One key success driver to help businesses achieve this is the savvy use of global trade technology and automation to effectively manage international trade operations. The benefits arising from such adoption of trade technology can only be fully realized with the second key success driver of a team of accomplished international trade practitioners utilising them.

This event aims to bring the community of international trade practitioners together for a day of quality discussions at not just at business level but also at personal career development level about the coming of age of the international trade practitioner in Asia.
