The Premise

 According to David Suzuki, “Global Trade has advantages. For starters, it allows those of us who live through winter to eat fresh produce year-round”. Investopedia posits that international trade allows countries to expand their markets and access goods and services that otherwise may not have been available domestically. Trade is the most proven potent catalyst for economic reconstruction and recovery. But trade is competitive.

The international trade space is a battlefield raging with fierce competition for market share and countries must arm their (trade) soldiers with the best weapons in order to succeed in this economic environment. Providing such support has been the major enabler of the success of those countries controlling the trade space, and a herculean task for economies in transition or development as they struggle to play in the space. Orchestrating a healthy environment for trade by regulating the imbalance in this competition is one of the major missions of the World Trade Organization. Securing a fair share of the space is the major reason for specialized trade blocs and preferential trade agreements. To succeed, a player, a firm or a nation in this battlefield must arm itself with all the information they can get. The developing economies in particular, must understand how the game is played and how they can enhance the competitiveness of their traders. Talking Trade with Femi Boyede has been set up to discuss, in a professional manner, all the angles related to all the issues that a firm, an individual or a country can expect to confront as they design, implement or modify their strategic process to manage trade. It is a virtual platform for engaging discussions on international trade from its components, through the values it offers to individuals, corporations and countries, reducing poverty, creating employment, growing national economies, increasing corporate profitability, etc).
