ECIPE Afternoon Seminar: Trade Policy 2.0 – Upgrading from national trade surpluses to firm-level performance

March 18 2015
Venue: Thon Hote EU, 75 Rue de la Loi, 1040 Bruxelles
Speakers: Lucian Cernat, Gerald Santucci, Ignacio Corlazzoli, Nicklas Lundblad, Penny Naas, Hosuk Lee-Makiyama,
Time: 15:00

The fact that companies increasingly expand to international markets and suppliers is hardly new, not least amongst SMEs.

And thanks to ‘big data’, unprecedented amount of information is available to firms on where to export, or choose their suppliers. Such decision-making on firm levels play an increasingly important role in economic flows. Yet trade policy rarely reflects reality: trade is thought of as taking place between countries, not firms; policies are still designed to maximise exports, and measured by surpluses in national accounts. Does this new reality call for a new way of thinking – in both data analysis and policy making?

– What type of analysis is now possible, thanks to real time and big data?

– Who are the leaders of SME or investment-led trade and firm-level market integration?

– How will a new trade policy that can improve the performance of EU firms?
