Speaker: Robert Koopman, Chief Economist, World Trade Organisation
The economic downturn has severely disrupted global supply chains and heightened trade tensions stemming from the US-China dispute, Brexit, and the rise in nationalism in many countries. As nations turn inwards, the role of international institutions and multilateral co-operation is increasingly important. Robert Koopman, chief economist and director of economic research at the World Trade Organisation, discusses major challenges facing global trade in 2020, as well as the future of the WTO.
