ECIPE Webinar: Regional Economic Integration in the Asia-Pacific: A Model for Addressing 21st Century Trade Policy Issues?

December 13 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Vangelis Vitalis
Time: 09:00

Join our online conversation on the Asia-Pacific.

We live in the Pacific century! The centre of gravity for the world economy is inexorably moving towards the region. While there is strong regional economic dynamism, with many economies in the Pacific being at the frontier of technological change and digital modernization, the economy is also spurred by new trade and economic agreements.

Is there a new and emerging role for APEC in the management of the region’s trade policy? How can trade policy help to unleash more trade and competition and drive economic modernization? Has the region found a model for addressing modern trade issues like frictions in digital trade and conflicting regulatory approaches between countries? Please join us for an ECIPE online conversation!
