We look forward to meeting you at the Commodity Roundtable

The last 18 months have been characterised by the global pandemic and all its negative effects: a new way of organising work, a change of business model, a major drop in commodity prices and then a major price increase, delays in supplies, freights that have grown significantly, etc.
In this context, commodity traders have had to work on the one side avoiding damage and and on the other side trying to seize opportunities. In this “Commodities Roundtable” we will listen to the opinion of some of our companies active in the various commodities traded from the Lugano hub.
