During a time when supply chain disruption has gripped the world, global collaboration pertaining to trade is imperative. Current U.S. restrictions against China are not only hindering the effectiveness of international commerce, but are also unraveling longstanding cooperation and competition among the globe’s largest economies.
To protect international trade efforts, the WTO has established principles to ensure the promotion of open markets, fair competition, and trading without discrimination. Are the current policies the U.S. has in place in line with the WTO’s multilateral rules? Panelists will discuss their thoughts, while highlighting how private and public sectors can work in tandem to promote effective trade on a global scale.
