According to the latest World Bank economic outlook, an escalation of tariffs up to legally-allowed bound rates could derail the current economic recovery and lead to a decline in global trade flows not seen since the Great Recession. Is there a global loss of appetite for trade liberalization? How can the World Trade Organization be reformed to address ongoing criticism? What global rules are needed to ensure fairer and more inclusive trade?
Pascal Lamy intervenes alongside Victor Harison, Commissioner for Economic Affairs, African Union Commission, Thierry de Longuemar, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), Ken Ash, Director, Trade and Agriculture, Organization Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Robert Tessier, Chairman of the Board, Caisse de dépôt et placement of Québec, and Bruce Stokes, Director, Economic Research, Pew Research Center. The meeting is moderated by Pierre-Marc Johnson, former First Minister of Quebec.
