In partnership with our parent company Nikkei, the second FT Commodities Tokyo Summit will debate the big drivers that will shape the industry in the years ahead focusing on the global shift toward cleaner sources of energy, a trend dubbed ‘decarbonisation’. As one of the world’s biggest buyers of raw materials, importing hundreds of millions of tonnes of coal, oil and natural gas every year, these issues are of vital importance to Japan. This year’s event will also examine some of the key developments in commodity markets in 2018, including the fallout from the US-China trade skirmish and Beijing’s war on pollution, as well as the outlook for 2019. There will also be a discussion on the global economy with Martin Wolf, the FT’s chief economic commentator.
With contributions from leading industry executives and thinkers, this year’s programme will provide unique and valuable insights on the industry as well as the opportunity to network and do business.
