Discover how the region’s leading ports and shipping companies have responded to an unprecedented mix of challenges brought by Covid-19 pandemic.
The coronavirus and its consequences, both social and economic, have touched every corner of the maritime world and the Middle East is no exception.
So how has the region navigated through the crisis and responded to its challenges, from market volatility and fluctuating fuel prices to disruption in established trade patterns?
In this webinar we will cover these and other questions:
Will the economic effects of the pandemic have a lasting impact on the region’s patterns of trade with key markets in Asia, India and Africa?
What is the likely shape of the recovery for world trade post-pandemic and will it leave any lasting impact on the march of globalisation going forward?
Has the pandemic accelerated investment in the digitisation of trade transactions?
