Oxford Economics in July 2018 predicted the current trade war could reduce world trade by 4 percent and wipe away 0.4 percent of global GDP (about US$800 billion). It is occurring at the same time that oil prices and interest rates are rising. “The threat to world growth is significant,” stated Oxford lead economist, Adam Slater.

A trade war is when a nation imposes tariffs or quotas on imports and foreign countries retaliate with similar forms of trade protectionism. As it escalates, a trade war reduces international trade.

A trade war starts when a nation attempts to protect a domestic industry and create jobs. In the short run, it may work. But in the long run, a trade war costs jobs and depresses economic growth for all countries involved. It also triggers inflation when tariffs increase the prices of imports.

In view of the above situation, the 16th FMM Business Best Practices Seminar on Trade War: Insights for Exporters and Importers is organised for participants to obtain the following benefits:
  • Understand the current trade war that could impact businesses in Malaysia;
  • Learn ways to mitigate currency risks in cross-border business transactions;
  • Explore practical solutions for Malaysian exporters and importers during trade war; and
  • Gain networking opportunities with participants, invited guests and speakers.
