The Future of Global Trade

Tuesday, May 2, 2023

Beverly Hilton - Wilshire Ballroom

The rapid expansion of international trade has served as a principal driver of economic growth and prosperity since World War II. However, the rules-based multilateral trading system underpinning the explosion in global commerce now faces an unprecedented set of challenges caused by dynamics including geopolitical tensions, macroeconomic imbalances, changing economic paradigms, and climate change. The experts on this panel will reflect on the future of global economic integration, the prospects for collaborative reforms, and the role of the private sector in building a sustainable, inclusive, and expanding global economy.
