ECIPE Webinar: Supporting Trust and Trade Openness in Covid-19 Vaccines – What should we do?

March 30 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Simon Evenett
Time: 14:00

Join us for an online discussion with Simon Evenett on trade and vaccines.

As countries are rushing to get their population jabbed with a Covid-19 vaccine, frictions in global vaccines trade are growing. The EU has already opened up for export restrictions and the Commission argues that there should be a mechanism to guarantee reciprocity between countries: if other countries don’t ship vaccines to Europe, the EU should be able to stop the export of vaccines to them. What are the consequences of vaccines export restrictions – and how do they relate to the value chain of vaccines production? What better measures can governments take to improve trust and transparency, and stimulate a faster scale up of vaccines production?
