De-globalisation – a new way to trade, but will it stick?

The pandemic has unquestionably shaken up trading relationships and supply chains, forcing some businesses to look to new markets or to re-shore their manufacturing capabilities. Even before the outbreak of Covid-19, there was evidence that globalisation has been slowing down and many political agendas have been inward looking or even protectionist. But is this readjustment of trade flows indicative of “slowbalisation”, or are we seeing a permanent move towards de-globalisation? Is the global nature of the pandemic itself as well as rapid digitalisation actually examples of a move towards increased globalisation where we think nothing of connecting with a customer located a continent away and sharing data, services and skills across cloud platforms?

Our panel will discuss which trend is dominating and talk about what the future holds for your business, the opportunities and risks you need to be aware of and examples of industries who are already adopting these trends and succeeding. All of this will help you understand what strategies your business can adopt, and the credit risks you’ll face.

Daisy McAndrew (former Economics Editor and Chief Political Correspondent for ITV News) will moderate a panel discussion on this subject as part of our Virtual Event Series. This event features:


  • Dr Linda Yueh – Leading economist on global trends, Fellow in Economics, St Edmund Hall, Oxford University and Adjunct Professor of Economics, London Business School
  • Valter Viero – Assistant Financial Director, Acciaierie Valbruna SpA
  • Bart Jan Koopman – Director of evofenedex, the Dutch trade association
  • Eric den Boogert – Managing Director Asia, Atradius
