The 2023 Seafood Expo Global, which took place 25 to 27 April 2023 in Barcelona, Spain, featured a comprehensive conference program of live panel events focusing on topics chosen to be of vital interest to the seafood industry.

The 20 individual presentations from SEG featured exclusive information and insight from 85 seafood industry experts, including economic forecasts and analysis on the trends and topics impacting the global seafood industry as it navigates issues of trade, food safety, traceability, aquaculture, sustainability, and consumption trends. Now, a video recording of each of these sessions is available for on-demand replay.  

Featuring Megan Greene, a senior fellow at the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business at the Harvard Kennedy School, Financial Times columnist, and professor at Brown University's Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, “Navigating the Global Polycrisis” is available free for SeafoodSource Premium members and for USD 350 to non-members through the Complete Digital Ticket: Seafood Expo Global 2023.

The session was presented on Wednesday, 26 April, with the following description:

This is a critical juncture for the global economy in the face of a number of parallel and often related crises. The polycrisis upon us includes the legacy of covid, war in Europe, an energy shock, high and persistent inflation, a global monetary tightening cycle, a strong US dollar, China's reopening and global indebtedness—to name a few. This is to say nothing of the turmoil playing out in financial markets as the decades-long negative correlation between bonds and stocks has reversed so both are tanking simultaneously. As years of cheap money come to an end and the tide of liquidity goes back out, we are starting to discover who is swimming naked. Global debt to GDP exceeds 300%, but countries are going to have to spend a lot more money to address the polycrisis. In doing so, they will be working against central banks, which will continue to withdraw accommodation in an effort to lean against inflation. Will fiscal and monetary authorities manage to navigate this without causing a global recession? What will a likely recession look like? And what will the global economy look like when the dust has finally settled on the pandemic and war?

The Complete Digital Ticket: Seafood Expo North America 2024, featuring 32 video-recorded sessions from the most recent SENA event, is also now available for purchase for USD 350, but is also free for SeafoodSource Premium members.
