Weber Shandwick publishes new trade report


In a time of significant change and disruption, a new Weber Shandwick report highlights major trade trends from the unique perspectives of the United States, European Union, United Kingdom, Brazil, South Africa, India, Japan and China.

The firm’s business experts in each market offer key insights into the political, business and cultural trends that are shaping trade and inward investment policymaking.

The report looks at global trade from different viewpoints:

● Who is disrupting the traditional consensus that free trade and globalisation benefits all?

● What’s at stake in the battle for global standards?

● What political dynamics are in play and how will they impact businesses and workers?

● What tools are countries using – from tariffs to tax policy to trade disputes – to give their domestic companies and workers an edge in the global market?

Understanding and anticipating the new global trade policy landscape is essential for any global company and its supply chain, the firm says, adding that today businesses must monitor trends with greater scrutiny and robustly advocate for sound trade and investment policies.
