Shaping the Future of Trade and Investment

Watch the overview

The need for action

The COVID-19 pandemic added a massive shock to global markets already strained by trade tensions. Businesses face significant trade and investment uncertainty in the new landscape, while governments strive to ensure recovery, resilience and sustainability.

Businesses and governments must work together to implement policies and practices that ensure international trade benefits society and the planet in the 21st century.
