Wrapping Up Trade in 2017

As the year comes to a close, several experts reflect on the global trade trends that made heads turn and how they might play out in 2018.

In April, the World Trade Organization reported that global trade was expected to recover in 2017 and 2018, even amidst the maelstrom of policy uncertainty and growing protectionism. Hoping for a rebound in economic performance, governments would need to pursue “the right policy mix.” Did that happen? What do importers and exporters need to think about now?

Amber Road’s sourcing and global trade experts discussed these topics during this webinar. Speakers included:

  • Eric Johnson, American Shipper's Research Director & IT Editor, who will talk about sourcing challenges including supplier optimization strategies, the under-utilization of free tradeagreements, and risk concerns in the early stages of product development.
  • Kristine Bols, Director of Global Trade Content for Amber Road, who will discuss export topics including sanctions, screening, and export controls.
  • Aleks Aperans, Associate Product Manager for Amber Road, who will provide updates on importing and the ACE PGA program.
  • Moderator: Gary Barraco, Director of Global Product Marketing for Amber Road
