Commodity producers, traders, buyers and investors are under pressure to undergo massive transformation. Companies face an increasingly complex operating environment, but have incredible opportunities to influence a brighter future, while delivering maximum impact.
Unprecedented volatility, changing consumer and governmental demands, digital transformation and an intense geopolitical landscape are impacting every commodity and every stakeholder.
A global shift toward environmental accountability, major technological disruptions and unexpected economic activity are all creating exciting opportunities and stark challenges for trading houses, investors, producers, traders, buyers and governments alike. So why does the system so often feel disconnected, outdated and impossible to transform?
Reuters Events’ Commodity Trading Summit will unite industry leaders passionate about challenging what’s possible and developing innovative and responsible solutions to deliver a better global commodity trading system.
