HSBC's State of Global Trade 2019
From digital disruption, trade tensions to trade talks, one thing is certain, trade and technology are constant topics of global conversation. HSBC invites you to join us for our annual program where we'll discuss the state of global trade and the opportunities it presents to US and global corporates. Our afternoon is meant to educate and inspire, and will be followed by a networking reception where you'll have the chance to meet and discuss with your peers from across various industries and functions.

Key Note: The State of the Global Market - Pat Burke, President and CEO, HSBC USA
Panel 1: Trade, Tariffs and Tensions
The politics of trade continue to evolve and the framework for U.S. trade policy and multilateral agreements are being reconsidered. With road markers moving, companies must review the global footprint of their supply chains and their export markets to see how their industries will be effected. Our panelists will discuss the impact of potential and real policy changes on trade deals and getting them done.

Moderator: Bill Evans, Head of Sales, Global Trade and Receivables Finance, HSBC
Amy Celico, Principal, Albright Stonebridge Group
Karen Tramontano, Co-founder and CEO, Blue Star Strategies LLC
Marian Moscu, President, Royce Corporation
Doug Lippoldt, Chief Trade Economist, HSBC Bank plc

Panel 2: The Digital Revolution of Trade
The digital revolution is transforming global trade and continues to flatten borders and push through barriers. Our panelists discuss the inner workings of the latest in technology, such as distributed ledger, the digitization of paper, cloud services and AI, and their impacts on moving goods and financing across the global supply chain.

Moderator: Andrew Betts, Regional Head of Global Trade and Receivables Finance Europe, HSBC
Priyamvada Singh, Head of Product Management Global Trade and Receivables Finance North America
Gert Sylvest, Co-founder and General Manager, Tradeshift Frontiers
