Over the last few years a pickup in global trade volume has played a key role in fueling stronger global growth.
Join our expert panel for this month's Economics Watch as they discuss The Conference Board's US and Global Economic Outlook with a special focus on trade and how recent changes in both domestic and worldwide trade patterns have affected the global economic environment.
Insights from this webcast:
- Why did trade growth pick up during the past two years after remaining slow in the years after the Great Recession?
- How have increased wages in China and other emerging markets, along with increased capacity for automated goods production, encouraged firms to reshore stages of production activity to mature markets?
- How should supply chain managers decide whether they will be better served by offshoring or reshoring value-chain stages in the coming years?
