Seminar – President Obama, Trade Policy, and Emerging Protectionism: Whither world trade?

March 25 2009
Venue: Sofitel Brussels Europe, 1 Place Jourdan, 1040 Brussel
Speakers: Jagdish Bhagwati, Professor at Columbia UniversitynAndré Sapir, Senior Fellow at Breugel and Professor at the ULBnJim Rollo,Professor at Sussex University
Time: 14:30

Global trade is tanking and protectionism is on the rise. Leaders have pledged to fight emerging protectionism, but these efforts have not prevented a big number of developed and developing countries erecting new barriers and imposing trade-distorting regulations. As the global economy continues to contract, and as unemployment is increasing fast, there is a serious threat of escalating protectionism that will damage the world economy and hamper economic recovery.

You are cordially invited to a seminar on current protectionist trends and what governments should do to backstop them. We are very pleased to have as keynote speaker Professor Jagdish Bhagwati, a world-leading economist at the Columbia University and the U.S. Council on Foreign relations who has pioneered several fields of trade economics. Author of numerous books on trade, Professor Bhagwati has tirelessly advocated the case for free trade as a writer, debater, scholar and adviser to several international organizations.

Professor Bhagwati’s lecture will be followed by comments from the two eminent trade economists André Sapir and Jim Rollo. Professor Sapir, a Senior Fellow at Breugel and Professor at the ULB, is a prolific scholar who has been advising several governments and the European Commission. Professor Rollo, a Professor at Sussex University, is a leading expert on trade and European integration.

RSVP no later than March 24 to info@ecipe.org

A limited number of seats will be available.
