The commodities industry has experienced an intense period of change on the back of the rise of China. But after a decade of torrid growth, emerging markets are slowing down. The industry is preparing new strategies for turbulent times. But change need not mean failure. On the contrary, turbulent times will create new opportunities; new trading strategies will appear, and new markets come into sight.

The 2014 Summit agenda will focus on the global economy, the role of Russia and Central Asia in commodities, transparency and regulation, commodity trade finance and many others topics. For the second year, the flagship ‘CEOs Debate’ will gather leading chief executives for a view from the top. In addition, a new panel entitled the ‘CFOs roundtable’ will gather chief financial officers for a discussion about financing.

Lionel Barber, Editor of the Financial Times, will chair the 2014 Summit, with Juan R. Luciano, President & Chief Operating Officer, Archer Daniels Midland Co delivering the Opening Keynote Interview. For a full list of other senior executives confirmed as speakers, please

The Summit will once again feature the who’s who of the commodity trading world and attendance is essential for anyone in the commodities sector.

We very much look forward to welcoming the 2014 delegation in Lausanne.
