The Way Back: How to Restore the Global Economy?

November 25 2009
Venue: Conference Venues, Rue Montoyer 47, Brussels
Speakers: Fredrik ErixonnRazeen SallynPatrick MesserlinnVivian DaviesnHans StråbergnSimon TilfordnEwa BjörlingnLucian CernatnGuy de JonquièresnRoderick Abbott
Time: 09:30

If finance was the first casualty of the global crisis, trade was certainly the second. Global trade has contracted sharply in the past year and has not started to recover yet. Many governments have also imposed protectionist measures during the crisis. While a 1930 style scenario of tit-for-tat tariff protectionism has not been triggered, the scale and profile of many trade-restrictive measures might damage trade to such a degree that a return to pre-crisis levels of trade might take many years.

As world economies are on the path to recovery, what needs to be done to restore the global economy – to make trade and global competition vehicles for growth? What are the challenges confronting the global economy in a post-crisis environment? And what needs to be done, beyond exit strategies, to kick-start the agenda for liberalization of global commerce?

You are cordially invited to an ECIPE conference on the future of the global economy. 

RSVP to info@ecipe.org by November 24
