Brussels Launch of The Global Enabling Trade Report 2008

May 01 2008
Venue: ECIPE’s offices, Rue Belliard 4-6, 7th Floor, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Margareta Drzeniek Hanouz, World Economic Forum
Time: 12:00

The benefits of free trade are well known. The World Economic Forum has embarked on a multi-year project of research and dialogue with international trade experts and key industry leaders in order to generate in-depth assessment of the obstacles hindering trade in 118 economies around the world. The resulting Report serves as a concrete resource, providing a measure of the extent to which countries have in place the necessary attributes to enable the free flow of trade. These include efficiency of customs administration, availability and quality of transport services, regulatory environment and security.

 The overall goal is to construct a platform for multi-stakeholder dialogue to explore how best to remove obstacles to trade, in the interest of fostering international economic development. Such dialogue will furnish businesses and policymakers with insights into priorities for reform in individual countries, helping them to more fully benefit from the opportunities offered by trade.

Welcome to the Brussels launch of the 2008 Report. Our guest speaker Margareta Drzeniek is a Senior Economist at the World Economic Forum and Co-Editor of the Report. Ms. Drzeniek will present the methodology and main findings of the report, before inviting those present to make their contributions to this ongoing project.

RSVP by 1 December to info@ecipe.org

A light lunch will be served.

Limited space available.
