Session for Inclusive growth

The future of trade policy and external cooperation: Is soft power passé?

Trade policy is back in the center of policy attention. Trade conflicts among major economies have been growing. Large trading powers are reconsidering long-held trade and investment policy stances. Political pressures are increasing to induce reshoring of global value chains to enhance ‘strategic autonomy’ and to use trade as a tool to pursue non-trade objectives.  Instruments to address foreign subsidization, tax the digital economy and to use trade policy to help green the economy raise the prospects of further trade tensions. This year’s World Trade Forum brings together researchers and practitioners to reflect on recent developments and opportunities to bolster trade cooperation looking forward.

ECDPM’s researcher and Sherpa member of ETTG, San Bilal will speak at the session on ‘Trade Integration and Policy Coherence’.
