The Biden Administration
President Joe Biden has donned the mantle in times of unprecedented pandemic, political and economic crises, while the GameStop saga becoming an early test of the administration's ethics pledges. Add to that geopolitical relationships that need to be mended and global economic integration that needs to be renewed.
The Reuters Global Markets Forum hosts a slate of guest speakers to discuss the future of Global Trade and Investment, including spending of infrastructure development, with the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) deal and China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in place in Asia, and Biden has taken over the presidency of the United States.
After weeks of last minute talks, a deal was finally agreed between European Union and UK, ending over four years of negotiation and safeguarding nearly a $1 trillion of annual trade, providing some clarity and relief to Brexit-weary investors. The markets reacted positively, but have more challenges ahead with the surge in COVID-19 cases. We examine the next steps with our stellar line-up of guests, and gauge the long-term impact of the Brexit deal on markets, finance and industry.
