Panel discussion: Where now for global trade—and how?

Covid-19 and the trade tensions that preceded it have seen world trade decline dramatically. Businesses of all sizes are feeling the strain on balance sheets, and millions of people have been thrust into financial hardship. When will global trade recover—if at all—and how? How are people, firms and global organisations responding and adapting? Will collaborative technologies and regional trade hubs keep the economic engine running, or will protectionist policies and fear impede a swift recovery?

Keynote interview: Remaking trade for all

Amid the ruin wrought by the covid-19 crisis, there is a unique opportunity to address systemic problems in globalisation and world trade that have plagued countries and sustained inequities for generations. What must be fixed, and how, to create a more level, transparent and accessible playing field for trade? What challenges lie ahead? And do countries and companies have the will to make difficult decisions in the short term to bring widespread benefits to all in the future?
