Event Description

Europe is caught in the maelstrom of rising nationalism and increased EU-US and China-US trade tensions. Yet, globalisation is only accelerating, driven by Industry 4.0 technologies and flows of data and information. The impact of new technologies (AI, RI, 3D printing) has shifted global trade patterns between goods and services. It is estimated that trade in services is growing 60% faster than trade in goods; and sector-wise, IT services, telecom, business services are growing 2-3 times as fast as trade in goods. 5G technology and infrastructure are the booster of the transformation, and the ultimate enabler of the digital economy and augmented trade in services. Against this background, Europe-Asia Interlink brings together a panel of experts and business leaders to shed light on Europe’s 5G challenges and to provide insights and perspectives on the impact of 5G on Future Triangular Trade at bilateral and multilateral levels.
