Shipping crisis: A threat to trade recovery?
Trade Promotion Council of India organised a webinar on the topic Shipping crisis: A threat to trade recovery on June 25, 2021. The session was organised in view of the recent double whammy of disruptions across shipping trade routes, rising freight costs and container shortages, which have been hampering operations of exporters, particularly SMEs.
The panelists discussed the genesis of the issue, it’s impact on the shipping industry, unresolved issues that have brought us to this current situation and the impact on exporters. They also debated on the possible evolution of the crisis in the coming months, practical insights for exporters and possible lessons for policy makers from this experience.
