Swedish Chambers Internationals Digital Event: The Changing Global Business Landscape

The world is changing at a rapid pace. Balances are shifting, and equilibriums are drifting. This unique webinar combines geopolitics and business, to investigate how Swedish actors in international trade are navigating this new global business landscape, with business insights from Brazil, China, and India. How do these new political tensions affect international trade?

The dynamics of international trade are profoundly influenced by changing geopolitical landscapes. Protectionism, friendshoring, and securitization are terminologies that have been used diligently by experts and politicians. But what are the actual implications on international trade? Has free trade and interdependence taken a permanent, unrecoverable, hit? Are larger companies in Sweden and the EU already re-structuring their supply chains? Has Sweden stopped trading with China? There are many questions to answer during this hour.

This unique webinar examined the current changing world order from two different perspectives. We were honoured to have Mikael Wigell, Research Director at the Finnish Institute of International Affairs and Professor in International Political Economy. His work on great-power politics and geoeconomics has been published in International Affairs, the European Commission and World Development, and he is a part of the leading World Economic Forum Expert Network. His expertise is combined with observations from three key markets in the changing business landscape: Brazil, China and India, represented by Jonas Lindström, Daniela Ling and Sara Larsson.

This webinar is offered in collaboration between Stockholms Handelskammare and the Swedish Chambers International (SCI).
