MSC to Speak at FT Global Trade Summit on 11 November

11/08/2021

Amid an unprecedented year for global commerce and supply chains, this year’s Financial Times Trade Secrets Summit will engage government, policy-makers, finance and business in a vital dialogue on what’s next for trade and the opportunities for business.  

MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company is proud to be a major sponsor of this important digital industry event and will feature at two points in the agenda on 11 November 2021:  

  • MSC’s CEO Soren Toft will deliver a keynote address at 11am (GMT) on “Global trade through the lens of a container shipping & logistics CEO”. He will focus on the effects of the pandemic upon global trade, how MSC has responded and continues to act on the challenges facing the market, as well as exploring how international shipping can continue to evolve to deliver world trade consistently post-pandemic. 

  • In a spotlight session at 3:10pm (GMT), MSC Group’s Executive Vice President, Maritime Policy and Government Affairs, Bud Darr, will discuss climate change and the shipping industry and the practicalities of navigating towards a zero-carbon future. 

The event will provide a global perspective on the latest geopolitical context, updates on governance reform and practical advice for businesses navigating a new trade order, including looking at how businesses can build resilient and more sustainable global value chains.
