Federico Santi, senior analyst-Europe of the New York-based consultancy the Eurasia Group, will serve as the keynote speaker of the 2019 Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference Europe event in Barcelona.
The event’s organizer, the United States-based Recycling Today Media Group, says Santi’s presentation will draw upon the resources of the highly regarded consultancy to open up the program on Tuesday, November 5, with a presentation on the political, economic and trade factors shaping the direction of events in Europe in 2019 and 2020.
Santi focuses on Europe’s political economy, including Eurozone economic governance, European Central Bank policy and the sovereign debt crisis in certain nations.
Prior to working at Eurasia Group, he performed research for an economist affiliated with the National Bureau of Economic Research and worked at the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the EU Delegation to the United States, and the U.S. Senate.
Eurasia Group describes itself as providing business owners and investors with political risk solutions based on both qualitative and quantitative tools. The consultancy’s ability to monitor the rapidly evolving world of geopolitics is designed not only to anticipate and manage such risks, but to allow customers to profit from them.
“For recyclers and traders who do business in Europe and beyond, Mr. Santi’s presentation—to be followed by many others focusing on the future of paper and plastic recycling in Europe—will make the 2019 Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference Europe a can’t-miss event,” states Recycling Today Publisher James R. Keefe.
Additional sessions at Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference Europe, which will take place Nov. 5-6 at the Hilton Barcelona, will delve into the changes roiling packaging, plastic and paper markets as governments, corporations and individuals around the world seek sustainable outcomes.
Protectionist measures, including Brexit and China’s ongoing barriers to imported scrap materials, will provide another topic of discussion at the conference, which has been organized annually since 2005 by the Recycling Today Media Group.
