Geopolitical Risk Outlook: The age of strategic competition

Metals & Mining breakfast briefing

Over the last 12 months, some of the world’s largest economies - the US, China, Australia and Russia - have been caught up in a range of fronts, bringing a new era of strategic competition. Our breakfast briefing will analyse these events and the key geopolitical risks set to affect the global metals and mining sector in the months and years ahead.

Join our metals & mining briefing to find out: 

  • How will the US-China trade war play out?
  • What impact would a trade deal have on global commodity markets?
  • What are the chances that sanctions against Russia firms will disrupt global commodity markets?
  • What does China’s politically-stoked ‘go-slow’ on Australian coal imports tell us about the world’s largest commodity demand centre?
