The Future of Trade

About the event

DMCC, one of the world’s leading commodity hubs for trade and enterprise, gathered more than 150 experts across five continents for ten months to ask: What is The Future of Trade?

The synthesis of our research and in-depth data analysis was presented in an exclusive report “The Future of Trade”, unveiled simultaneously at Google Campus London and Google Astrolabs in Dubai last March 17, 2016.

DMCC Partners in The Future of Trade include: Google Campus London, The Centre for Economics and Business Research, NYU Abu Dhabi, AstroLabs, Oxford Business Group, SP Jain School of Global Management and CPI Media Group.


The Future of Trade highlights the emerging impact of digital transformation for importers and exporters, along with the ongoing shifts in global economic power and burgeoning improvements in system efficiency.

As many as 350 million businesses would begin exporting goods for the first time if they were to adopt an end-to-end digital strategy, according to the first Future of Trade report from DMCC.
