Shared Services Centre (SSC) Masterclass

14.03.2019 Lisa McAuley

Shared Services Centres (SSC) is the entity responsible for the execution and the handling of specific operational tasks in an organization, such as accounting, HR, payroll, IT, legal, compliance, purchasing, security, and more. The SSC is often a spin-off of the corporate services to separate all operational types of tasks from the corporate headquarters. As SSCs are often cost centres, they are quite cost-sensitive also in terms of their headcount, labour costs and location criteria.

Training Course on Understanding the Benefits of FTAs

12.03.2019 Lisa McAuley

With a network of 24 bilateral and regional FTAs/Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with 36 trading partners, companies that operate in Singapore are strategically positioned to benefit from easier entry and greater access to global markets for their products and services. More importantly, companies can ride on these FTAs/EPAs to trade with and invest in other countries predictably. This is essential in today’s unpredictable environment of increasing trade tensions.

Mentoring Matters to Women-led Businesses in LDCs

Mentoring Matters to Women-led Businesses in LDCs

08.03.2019 Collins Rex

Over the past few weeks I’ve undertaken a whistle-stop tour of Asia-Pacific, working on the GTPA’s three-year Australian Aid-funded programme to establish support services for small businesses in developing countries. I have visited Samoa, Vanuatu, Vietnam, Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh (the countries where the programme will be implemented).

While undertaking a range of meetings with both the public and private sectors, I was also fortunate to catch up with some of the women who were part of the Australia Awards: Women Trading Globally programme. Our CEO, Lisa McAuley, and I initiated this programme back in 2017, and I had the rare privilege of training and guiding the women through three separate courses in 2017 and 2018.

Celebrating International Women’s Day: shining the light on the women who rock international trade

Celebrating International Women’s Day: shining the light on the women who rock international trade

08.03.2019 Lisa McAuley

In advance of International Women’s Day the GTPA launched a campaign to shine a light on the women who rock international trade and over the last couple of weeks I have been privileged to receive the profiles of some truly incredible women working in trade. It was amazing to see the diversity of the different roles women play in international trade.

I have long commented on how SMEs are the backbone of most economies and women business owners are also crucial to economic growth. According to research by consultancy, McKinsey, advancing women’s equality could add $28 trillion to global GDP by 2025 – equivalent to adding a new United States and China.

As I am currently in Santiago, Chile to attend APEC related meetings on empowering Women in Trade, I congratulate the Chilean government for prioritising this issue as part of APEC 2019 and I was privileged to attend a fantastic Capacity Building Workshop on Women and Trade coordinated by Canada, Chile and New Zealand, which discussed some of the policy priorities in this area.

The rapid pace and scale of technological change and global flows of information, among other forces, are disrupting labour markets and fundamentally altering the future of work.

Open, transparent and rules-based international trade for eCommerce and Digital Services are critical to economic prosperity

28.01.2019 Lisa McAuley

“The GTPA congratulations the 76 WTO members committed to establishing eCommerce rules. The rapid pace and scale of technological change and global flows of information, among other forces, are disrupting labour markets and fundamentally altering the future of work. While these shifts may create economic growth, new jobs and flexible work, they may also lead to the automation and consequent disappearance of routine, manual roles,” said Lisa McAuley, CEO of the Global Trade Professionals Alliance (GTPA).

Technological advancements, despite the disruption, also create opportunities for expansion into global markets for sectors of the population excluded from more traditional trade mechanisms. The ability to seize these opportunities and manage potential obstacles, however, is not evenly distributed.

Asia Trade Summit

Asia Trade Summit

10.01.2019 Lisa McAuley

Free trade was under fire before the Brexit vote and the 2016 American presidential election. Non-tariff barriers were already on the rise in the years following the global financial crisis and contributed to growth in global trade flows falling behind that of global GDP growth for only the second time in more than two decades. There were some bright spots, including the completion of large-scale bilateral and regional free trade agreements, but those were also a further sign of the WTO’s diminished capability to function as a forum for advancing multilateral trade liberalisation. The new threats to trade arising from rising populism and disruptive technologies are, in other words, accelerating existing trends and seeding new ones.

Can Blockchain revolutionise trade?

Can Blockchain revolutionise trade?

03.12.2018 Emmanuelle Ganne

Trade has always been shaped by technological innovation. In recent times, a new technology, Blockchain, has been greeted by many as the next big game-changer. Can Blockchain revolutionize international trade?

The publication introduces the technology with a basic explanation of how, as a tamper-proof, decentralized record of transactions, it allows participants to collaborate and build trust with each other. It describes different classifications of Blockchains and their current and possible applications in the various areas covered by WTO rules. In doing so, it provides an insight into the extent to which this technology could help with trade facilitation, including how it can hasten the transition to paperless trade transactions. It considers Blockchain's potential and limits in transforming services by looking at payment systems, insurance and the automation of contracts. The publication also discusses how Blockchain could help ease the administration of intellectual property rights and enhance government procurement processes.
