Michael Froman, former US trade representative, confirmed as keynote for World Trade Symposium 2017
The World Trade Board today announced the addition of a new initiative on sustainable trade, alongside its existing three initiatives, as part of its pledge to advance standards and digitalisation in global trade finance.
Sessions on each initiative will be taking place at the upcoming World Trade Symposium in London on 6-7 June 2017. The event brings together global leaders, influencers and subject matter experts from banks, corporates, industry bodies and not-for-profits to discuss how trade can be transformed to drive financial inclusion through globalisation and digitisation. The four initiatives include:
“The goal of the World Trade Board and our four strategic initiatives is to promote the vision of an inclusive, prosperous and beneficial trade ecosystem by advancing standards, governance and digital technologies in global trade. Ultimately it’s about securing long-term sustainable trade for the good of all,” said Simon Paris, Co-chair of the World Trade Board and President at Misys. “We look forward to welcoming our distinguished keynotes and participants to this year’s World Trade Symposium.”
Ambassador Michael Froman, former US Trade Representative, will keynote at the event, offering his insight into the rapidly-changing world of global trade. For further information on the World Trade Symposium 2017 and details of the agenda visit: www.Worldtradesymposium.com
