Exclusive Invitation: Fireside Chat on Geostrategic Risks & Sea Trade – A Must-Attend Event

29 February @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Dear Propeller Club Members,
We are excited to invite you to a critical fireside chat titled “Geostrategic Risks in the Course of the Global Economy: A Discussion on Sea Trade with Instability in the Suez Canal and Its Effect on Daily Lives.” This event is designed to shed light on the complex interplay between geopolitical dynamics and global trade, with a special focus on the strategic maritime routes like the Suez Canal, which are pivotal for the global logistics network.
Event Details:
• Date: 29th of February
• Time: Luncheon & Networking starts at 12:00 PM; Conference begins at 12:30 PM
• Venue: Grand Hyatt, İstanbul
Moderator: Hugh Jonathan Boag Beard, esteemed for his expertise in logistics and trade. As the past chairman of the British Chambers of Commerce and with deep roots in the family business that spans Turkey, the Black Sea, and Central Asia, Jonathan brings a wealth of knowledge and insight.
Speaker: Dr. Şadan Kaptanoğlu, a trailblazer in the maritime industry. Her extensive experience in shipping, finance, and trade, combined with her leadership roles in BIMCO and TURMEPA, makes her an authoritative voice on the subject.
Our discussion will delve into recent geopolitical tensions that have heightened the risks associated with key maritime routes, particularly the Red Sea. Recent attacks and the potential for ongoing conflict in this region underscore the vulnerability of critical chokepoints that facilitate the flow of international trade. The World Bank’s warning about rising global supply chain stress, potentially echoing the disruptions experienced during the pandemic, illustrates the significant impact such instability can have on logistics and, by extension, the global economy.
This fireside chat will not only explore the direct implications of these tensions on sea trade but also discuss the broader economic considerations. With geopolitical conflicts raising transport prices and threatening to disrupt supply chains, understanding the interconnections between politics, economic policies, and logistical realities has never been more important.
This event promises to provide invaluable insights and networking opportunities for those involved in or interested in the future of global trade and logistics. As we navigate through an era of geostrategic uncertainties, your participation in this timely discussion is crucial.
