The new e-book on “Revitalising Multilateralism: Pragmatic ideas for the new WTO Director General”, co-edited by Simon Evenett and Richard Baldwin, offers practical suggestions for a WTO work programme greatly but not solely shaped by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Since the launch of the book several developments occurred with potential impact for the multilateral trade system including, to name a few:

This ARTNeT webinar seeks to engage co-editors of the “Revitialising Multilateralism” and several other collaborators and experts in a conversation on how to make international cooperation more effective to reset the trade regime underpinning recovery of economies around the region and the world towards building better future.
Moderator: Mia Mikic, ARTNeT coordinator and Director, Trade, Investment and Innovation Division
This webinar is organized in collaboration with the Geneva Trade Platform.
