The global economy is under stress and the future direction of national policies and corporate strategies will have a fundamental impact on the future of shipping and international trade. To better understand the shifts in the operating environment we have launched the digital ICS Leadership Insights Series. The programme will bring together industry leaders, policymakers and financiers to discuss the global shifts that have arisen in the wake of the pandemic and chart the path back to economic growth, stability and resilience.  

In September, the first two meetings of the series, consisting of a total of six session, took place. The series, scheduled for two meetings per month, to take place in October and November, being sponsored by the Turkish Shipbuilders’ Association (GISBIR).

The Series is chaired by Esben Poulsson, Chairman of the International Chamber of Shipping.Key issues that will be covered by the series include:

  •        Developing resilient and sustainable economies in the wake of COVID-19.
  •        New alliances and geopolitical tensions.
  •        How to restart trade and travel?
