The increasing digitalisation of the international commerce has been accelerated due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and now the War in Ukraine. Economic recovery is still dependent on international commerce increasing and the  positive impact of continual improvements in  digital commerce. During the last year or two we have faced issues as the disruption of global supply chains, arising from factors such as the shortage of raw materials, commodities and as well due to trade barriers and restrictions to the movement of people, enacted in the world to counter the pandemic spreading or due to the War. Digitisation in this context has helped businesses to increase their resilience and helped to optimize processes of manufacturing and distribution along the supply chain. Our panel of experts will treat these and other topics of high relevance for the international commerce. Specific consideration will be given to particular industries more impacted by this important trend.
