Camelot participated and contributed in the Global Cargo Transportation and Logistics Summit that was held during the Global Trade Development Week (GTDW) on 27 – 29 Oct 2015 in Dubai.
Now in its 6th Edition, GTDW was held in partnership with the Ministry of Economy UAE as a leading annual international forum and exhibition in Dubai. Featuring over 150 international speakers and 1000 participants across 100 nations and a private exhibition, GTDW brought together world leading experts and high level decision makers from multilateral agencies, various government ministries & agencies and private sector organisations from across industries to network and to discuss on important trade issues such as global value chains, cutting trade barriers, market access, building capacity, globalisation of the economy, international trade agreements, access to trade finance, global supply chain, customs and trade facilitation and SME development.
The theme for GTDW 2015 was ‘Innovation in Global Trade and Economic Development’. Camelot’s Managing Partner Middle East & Asia Marcus Meissner participated in the interactive panel discussion: Intermodal Cargo Logistics Trends and Innovations where he placed a special focus on the impact of rail on logistics in GCC. While Camelot’s Principal and Head of Logistics Mark Appleyard contributed to the interactive panel discussion: Innovations in Shipment Processes, Technology Tools and Regulatory and Compliance to Enhance Cargo and Supply Chain Security.
In case you were among the 1000 participants, we hope you enjoyed the event and made some new business leads as well. Camelot looks very much forward to meeting you during the 7th edition of GTDW in 2016, another major international forum committed to increasing knowledge and dialogue between government and private sector trade leaders – and helping us find innovative new ways of taking the global economy to new heights.
