Deglobalisation or “slowbalisation”?

There is increasing concern that we are entering a period of deglobalisation. A heightened sense of geopolitical risk and stress within global supply chains following the Covid pandemic and the Russia Ukraine are contributing to fears of a retreat in global trade growth. A series of targeted interventionalist policies by the West towards countries reliant on importing advanced technology and rising US-China tensions are only adding fuel to this fire. In this webinar, we explore whether these fears are warranted in our view and what is visible in the trade data.
