Enhanced connectivity and logistics performance are key elements in promoting trade, attracting foreign direct investment and increasing business opportunities for both developed and developing economies. How are international treaties and new consumer trends impacting the global trade map and its supply chains? How can transport infrastructure and logistics systems, such as airports, ports and their related intermodal services, better respond to tomorrow’s freight and passenger requirements and time-sensitive demands? How can technology be implemented to optimize efficiency and improve trade and connectivity?
