ECIPE Webinar: How Can We Revive the WTO and Trade Multilateralism?

January 13 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Simon Evenett, Erik van der Marel
Time: 11:00

Simon Evenett will talk about how can we revive the WTO and trade multilateralism after the COVID-19 crisis.

What’s the role of WTO in global trade policy? The WTO is not in a good shape today and multilateral trading arrangements are under considerable strain. At the same time, the COVID-19 crisis has made it clearer than ever that a common set of trade rules matter for the world economy. In a new book edited by Richard Baldwin and Simon Evenett, a group of trade experts put forward pragmatic ideas for how the WTO can be revived.
