Sectors, Trade & Competitiveness

Trade has been a key driver in the growth in prosperity over the last few decades. By opening markets up to new suppliers and forcing firms to innovate in order to remain competitive, it leads to improvements in the quality, cost and range of goods and services on offer.

But the nature and context for trade has changed. Spurred on by technological innovation, modern supply chains are international and highly fragmented, and services can be more readily traded. Not everyone has benefited from the shift in traditional trade patterns. The rationale for free trade is being challenged.

Navigating this complexity is challenging but we have a long track record of analyzing how sectors perform and interact.  We analyze trade, competitiveness and sector performance and make sense of the complexity to allow you to make, or influence, better decisions.

Some challenging questions we can help you answer:
