The World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Trade & Foreign Direct Investment is pleased to present the report Mega-regional Trade Agreements: Game-Changers or Costly Distractions for the World Trading System? In continuing with the aim to inform the policy debate on critical issues to shape the global trade agenda, the objective of this document is to explore the impact mega-regionals may have on countries that are not part of the negotiations. It highlights opportunities and challenges in promoting the coexistence of these agreements – should they come to fruition – with the multilateral trading system.
