Conference: Global Trade 2016
Governance, Growth and the Changing Dynamics of International Trade
11 July 2016 – London
Global trade growth has slowed in recent years. Weak import volumes, deceleration of growth in China and sluggish global economic activity amid continued geopolitical tensions suggest a subdued outlook in 2016 and beyond.
In this context, now is a critical time to assess the existing architecture of trade governance and structural impediments to global trade as well as the potential for trade liberalization efforts, via mega-regional agreements, to boost trade flows.
Register now to join leading policy-makers and trade experts including:
Maria Åsenius, Head of Cabinet to the EU Commissioner for Trade
Anthony Gardner, US Ambassador to the European Union
Lord Jim O’Neill, Commercial Secretary to the Treasury, UK
Professor Kerry Brown, Director, Lau China Institute, King’s College, London
Hanne Melin, Director, Global Public Policy, EBay
Penelope Naas, Vice-President for International Public Affairs and Sustainability, UPS
