Worshipful Company of World Traders Charitable Trust
The World Traders’ Tacitus Lecture was inaugurated in 1988 and is now believed to be the largest event of its type in the City of London. It is held annually at London’s Guildhall and provides the Company with an opportunity to demonstrate to a wider audience its concern with issues affecting world trade. The Lecture benefits educationalists, business leaders, charities and students.
In 2019 the Lecture was delivered by Mme. Christine Lagarde who was then Chair and Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund. CET funded the Tacitus Lecture between 2005 and 2019.
