The WTO was in need of an update even before Covid19 began to dominate the agenda – but the epidemic has just made it more obvious that we need to strengthen international cooperation and make it more efficient. Without a functioning and predictable trading system, the mitigation of the Corona Crisis, and the recovery from the economic fallout will be much more difficult.

GED has recently published a number of contributions to the debate on WTO reform. Please join us as we discuss our key findings in a virtual roundtable with Bernard Hoekman, Doug Nelson, Petros Mavroidis, and Robert Wolfe.
