The Future of Global Trade with Dr Lena Wilson CBE

What will global trade look like in 2025?

How will market demands change as a result of shifting demographics, rising global consumption and geographic trends?

What do organisations need to do in response to growing competition, technological change and the dynamics of speed, scale and trust?

Navigating an uncertain global business environment throughout the 2020s will require business leaders to have strategic foresight, new capabilities and agile responses.

Scottish Enterprise has developed an evidence-based piece of research to uncover insights about the future of global trade and the emerging drivers of change. Over 80 original sources of information have been analysed and over 700 senior business individuals and trade support professionals have been consulted to inform this research.

Dr Lena Wilson CBE provided an anlaysis of this research and looked at the range of drivers of global trade in the future – from digital and technology innovation; rapidly changing business models and pressures on global resources.
