GTI enables clients to create advantage out of the uncertainty from a ‘new normal’ where Industry 4.0, labor cost convergence, digitization, and rising economic nationalism are reshaping the foundations of trade. Immediate impacts also loom large: from Brexit, to the US-China trade conflict, to the new USMCA and global supply chain disruptions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
GTI can support firms to build resilience and create advantage as global trade becomes top-of-mind in the C-suite, as well as governments in using trade policy as a vehicle to spur economic development and recovery.
