16.35 Question Time: Quizzing the UK’s future trade leaders
With the UK trade market enjoying a mostly ageing demographic, it has never been more important to educate and attract more young people to the industry, whether for exporting companies or the financiers tasked with supporting them. Why are so few UK companies exporting? What can be done to improve the situation? Is the talent of tomorrow looking to work in trade and exports? What is the role of membership bodies and professional initiatives in promoting the benefits of international business? How can the market stay competitive? This session, themed on the Question Time format, will bring various experts and practitioners together to consider these and many other themes.
