Trade Skills and Knowledge in the Private Sector

The Institute for International Trade (IIT) in partnership with the Global Trade Professionals Alliance (GTPA), Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and Ernst & Young LLP, invite you to join leading experts for an interactive discussion on emerging trade capacity gaps for businesses.

A recent global study conducted by EY involving 400 global businesses found that many lack the trade skills and knowledge required to advance their business and growth objectives. In short – today’s businesses are missing out on opportunities that a deeper understanding of international trade policies and government decision making processes could provide.

Join us as we learn more about the findings of this research, and what is being done to support today's businesses to succeed in an increasingly complex global trading environment.
