The environment is dominating global news at present with the COP26 summit coming up in two weeks. This week, we look at China’s position, and the direction it is likely to move in, as concerns environment challenges and biodiversity. We also examine future transport connectivity and provide an overview of the upcoming COP26 summit.

Regionally, we look at important trade issues that will impact global supply chains with discussions underway involving the CPTPP, China, ASEAN, and Russia. We drill down deeper into investment opportunities through the Hong Kong – Greater Bay Area’s ‘Wealth Connect’ program, and look at trade developments in India, Indonesia, and Vietnam. We also ask why the International North-South Transportation Corridor now favors Armenia rather than Azerbaijani routing – a key issue for the transshipment of goods between Asia and Europe.
