Digital trade allows businesses to trade goods remotely to a wider consumer base. It encompasses digitally ordered transactions and digitally delivered services including activities such as the distribution of films and TV. In 2019, the UK’s remotely delivered trade was worth a staggering £326 billion - equating to around one quarter of Britain’s total trade in that year.
Glasgow is hosting the 26th ‘Conference of the Parties’ from 31 October until 12 November this year, following last year’s cancellation due to the coronavirus pandemic. More than 190 World leaders are travelling to Glasgow to participate in discussions with a view to reaching agreement on plans to achieve a global Net Zero economy. In addition to its commitment to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030, having recently been recognised as a ‘global green city’ by the Global Forum on Human Settlements, Glasgow is a fitting host for this year’s Summit.
