Join global trade policy experts and practitioners to discuss how to build a more resilient global trade system that can withstand the shocks of tomorrow.

This year’s ‘Global trade’ conference explores the different potential shocks and broader structural changes facing global trade. Discussion focuses on how policymakers, businesses and civil society can work together to ensure a more resilient and sustainable system in the post-pandemic world.

Join an international audience of policymakers, senior business leaders, intergovernmental and multilateral organizations and other experts to engage in discussion over two days. With a focus on interactivity, key features in the virtual environment include 1:1 networking, polling, Q&A with speakers and live analysis of results.

This conference is part of the Chatham House LIVE series and is being hosted online and on the record.

Why attend?
• Be part of the conversation on how trade practitioners can build on the work of COP26 to better harmonize trade and environmental agendas.
• Explore how heightened geopolitical competition is increasing the likelihood of supply chain shocks.
• Learn about the key emerging supply chain chokepoints as part of the transition towards a green and digital economy.
• Discuss the role the World Trade Organization (WTO) should play in developing a more resilient and sustainable system of global trade.
