The World Trading System at the Crossroads
Uri Dadush, Senior Fellow, Policy Center for the New South, delivered a presentation at the periodic Brown Bag Lunch (BBL) seminars organized by the Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry (RIETI).
The topic of Uri’s presentation was “The World Trading System at the Crossroads,” which was attended by 40 trade officials and experts from Japan and from diplomatic missions in Tokyo.
In his presentation, he addressed the present difficulties of the trading system with a focus on three questions: (1) Can the WTO be revitalized? (2) Is the present US trade policy likely to persist in the long-run or is it an aberration? (3) Does China fit in the WTO?
RIETI is the think-tank of METI, the Japanese Ministry of Economy and Trade, and is charged with leading the analytical work on trade for the coming G20 summit. Uri Dadush is co-chair of that effort.
This event took place in Tokyo, Japan.
