Personal statement

The world after the COVID-19 pandemic has been the hot topic that every country is seeking the answer to adapt to it brilliantly. By being part of the Master of Global Trade program, I expect to seek a deeper understanding of new trade policy implications on commodities value chain based on what the pandemic might have left to us. 

To give an illustration of what I mean, let’s look at the case of manufacturing after COVID-19. China used to be a perfect example of the world's factory because of its strong ecosystem, low taxes and duties, and competitive currency practices. The whole world had relied on that comfortable system, until the day we all realized the notable effect when China began coughing. Quickly, countries started adopting new ways of doing business by shifting their reliance out of China, manufacturing by themselves or in other countries. There are plenty of opportunities created because of this event, and in order to extract the best value out of it, we need to master the new trade policy system.
