Deutsche Post DHL GoTrade 2022 Summit: How to boost inclusive and sustainable trade

It was lovely to have had a front row seat at the GoTrade 2022 Summit and lend expert commentary during its interactive wrap-up sessions. The event was attended by leaders from across the public and private sector. The full summary report – produced with our help – has just been published and is ready for download. Noteworthy is that it also includes a long list of helpful recommendations and action points.

“Cross Border Logistics Operations: effective trade facilitation and border management” – book reviews and endorsements

Reviews and endorsements are always humbling . I certainly was pleasantly surprised to see so many for my book when it was launched in August 2021 … and of course for Prof David Widdowson’s lovely foreword!

Wonderful to see, too, is that the book is being procured by libraries around the world, and that it is finding its way onto university reading lists. Educators can reach out to the publisher for an inspection copy. And if you want to own a copy – its not for students only! – the publisher is offering a 20% discount code (use the KOGANPAGE20 code at checkout). Amazon UK, at least for today, is bettering that discount (21% – no code needed)…. but as they say, it can be purchased at all other good bookshops, too!

Book launch date: 3rd August 2021

I am very pleased to announce that on 3rd August 2021 Kogan Page will be launching my forthcoming book “Cross-border Logistics Operations, effective trade facilitation and border management”. This book has been a long time in the making and has received wonderful endorsements.

Advance orders with a 20% discount code (CROSSBORDER20) can be placed directly with the publisher at: https://www.koganpage.com/cblog. A sample chapter is available for free. Orders can also be placed at other major book retailers around the world.

Workshop: Facilitating external trade via border management

On 25th January 2017 we proudly delivered a workshop at the European Parliament for members of its International Trade Committee (INTA). A recording of my presentation along with that of Dr Juha Hintsa can be accessed online at the European Parliament’s Media Centre.

Our subsequent report was published on the 25 July 2017 and is available for free download.
