Reforming US Trade Policy to Benefit More Americans and Better Advance Development

Thursday, October 3, 2019 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Global trade is facing strong political headwinds in the United States. While evidence shows trade generally yields economic benefits on balance, gains are distributed unevenly. Trade agreements are also negotiated in secret and increasingly address regulatory issues in ways that raise concerns among consumers and workers, at home and abroad. How can US trade policy be rebalanced to be more inclusive, and ensure that more people benefit?

We hope you will join us for this event where an expert panel will discuss the Trump administration’s trade agenda and explore the implications of US trade policy for developing countries.
