Global Trade Week 2022: Changing tariffs and trade barriers – are you prepared?

Published 05 July 2022

Geopolitical frictions are putting supply chains under strain. Can multilateralism help? Hinrich Foundation Research Fellow Stewart Paterson participated in Economist Impact’s Global Trade Week to reflect on the shift in the global trade order and the importance of reforming existing multilateral structures for stable international trade.

Watch webinar recap here:

According to Paterson, deglobalization and the decline of the multilateral trading system can be traced back to the rise of mercantilist tendencies among economies and the uneasy transition from a unipolar to a multipolar world order. As China continues to grow and unilateral government actions proliferate, the crisis facing multilateralism grows. Can businesses adapt to changing trading relationships?

Catch up on this discussion with Paterson and a host of experts to understand the importance of reforms at the World Trade Organization, which has served as the backbone of predictable, transparent, and rules-based international trade. Moderated by Alice Slayton Clark, Director of Investment, Trade, and China at the US Council for International Business, the webinar features the following speakers delivering insights into the changing global trade order and how businesses can prepare for this change:

  • Stewart Paterson, Research Fellow, Hinrich Foundation
  • Mayra Souza, Stakeholder Relations, TradeExperettes
  • Darya Galperina, Head of International Trade, Pernod Ricard
  • Fernanda Hermann, Head of Global Customs Standards and Strategy, Diageo

Economist Impact’s Global Trade Week (GTW) 2022 convened thought leaders from the entire trade ecosystem to reflect on the new reality of trade. This 40-minute session was held on the first day of the week-long event – 27 June 2022.
