On December 12th, 2017, Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP) will host the session on “A New Paradigm for Trade Policy: Trumpism and Challenges to the Multilateral Trading System ” as part of the Trade and Sustainable Development Symposium (TSDS) 2017 in Buenos Aires.

 

The TSDS, organised by the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) and held alongside the WTO ministerial conference for over a decade, is the leading multi-stakeholder platform for intellectual enquiry and dialogue on sustainable development and the global trade and investment system. It acts as an inclusive platform outside of the WTO negotiating setting for sharing ideas, engaging in dialogue, and influencing trade policy negotiations. Drawing in participants from government, business and civil society, the Symposium helps to maintain and elaborate a global vision of sustainable development in trade and investment policymaking.

 

In KIEP session, we first would like to assess the achievements and the challenges of the multilateral trading system, especially in the context of current economic environment. Then we will explore all the possible options for the changes of the current multilateral trading system and ways to enhance the international cooperation in trade liberalization.
