Keynote: Populist Politics, Inflation’s Return and Why Trade is Back on the Menu: The Outlook for 2025 and Beyond

Mar 10 2024

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM EDT


In his keynote address, Mark Blyth will pick up from where he left off in 2018 – the last time he spoke with the North American seafood marketplace. In that talk, he highlighted how populist politics would continue to disrupt international trade, which is hugely significant for an industry that in the U.S. imports much of its product. This year, Blyth picks up that theme, tying the upcoming U.S. election into a broader story about why such politics are here to stay, why inflation might not be dead and buried, and why trade tensions are only likely to rise over the next few years regardless of how the U.S. election turns out.
