Davos 2023: Relaunching Trade, Growth and Investment

Flows of capital, goods, services and people have boosted productivity and living standards, tripling the size of the global economy over the past three decades. However, tensions over trade and investment are undermining growth and trust.

This session is directly linked to the ongoing work of the Trade and Investment Platform of the World Economic Forum.
