ECIPE & DIHK Seminar: What’s in it for business? The next steps of WTO reform and the challenges ahead

December 12 2019
Venue: ECIPE Office, Av des Arts 40, 6th floor, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Volker Treier, Sandra Gallina, Bernd Lange, Roderick Abbott, Philipp Lamprecht
Time: 10:00

What are the likely scenarios and next steps of the WTO reform process and their resulting risks and opportunities for business in Europe?

ECIPE in cooperation with DIHK, the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce, cordially invites you to join a discussion on risks and opportunities of the ongoing WTO reform process for business and especially SMEs in Europe.

In the context of the WTO’s dispute settlement system threatened and effectively rendering global trade rules unenforceable, we would like to discuss the likely scenarios and next steps of the WTO reform process as well as their risks and opportunities for European business.

  • What are the likely scenarios and next steps of the WTO reform process? What are potential impacts on European business?
  • The WTO’s dispute settlement system is at risk of becoming effectively useless. What are the likely consequences for business in Europe?
  • The WTO moratorium on tariffs on data transfers stands to end on 1 January 2020, whilst plurilateral negotiations are ongoing. What future for international e-commerce?
  • What are the risks and challenges for European business in concrete terms in the near and long term? What are the opportunities for European business of managing these impacts?
  • What are the chances for a WTO MSME initiative to succeed at MC12 to better integrate small business into global value chains? What are the problems and what is the EU doing to address them?
