ECIPE Seminar: Can plurilateralism save the Bali agreement on trade facilitation?

April 26 2014
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Stuart Harbinson
Time: 12:00

The new package of trade accords that was concluded at the World Trade Organisation’s Bali Ministerial Meeting late last year was a fresh start for the battered international trade body. Yet defeat has been snatched from the jaws of victory. A small number of countries refuses to agree on a protocol for the Bali deal on trade facilitation – and the entire agreement is now endangered.

Please join us for a lunch seminar to discuss if the many countries which support the Bali agreement should now chart a plurilateral way forward. 

The seminar is kicked off by a presentation by Stuart Harbinson, a Senior Fellow of ECIPE with a long career at the WTO (including Chairman of the WTO’s General Council), who will argue that there are practical ways of proceeding in the absence of complete consensus. 

Sandwiches will be served during the seminar.
