The international trade order shaped in the aftermath of World War II is changing. How did we get here and what are the key trade issues you need to keep an eye on? Hinrich Foundation Senior Research Fellow, Stephen Olson, will explore the main drivers that are fundamentally reshaping the post-war global trade system in this briefing session.
The post-World War II global trade system has been slowly crumbling for the better part of the last two decades. A new economic nationalism has begun to counter the decades of globalization that followed the end of the Cold War and the opening of China to the world. This has been partly driven by the pressures created by China’s model of state-directed capitalism and a re-examination of the economic and social trade-offs brought by trade. More recently, the pandemic and the Ukraine crisis have raised complex and divisive questions about the multilateral trade system. Despite these headwinds, trade remains an essential source of growth, economic development and rising standards of living.
Hinrich Foundation Senior Research Fellow Stephen Olson examines the fundamental drivers of the emerging global trade system and the importance of ensuring that trade can continue to deliver benefits in the decades to come.
Join the session on 9 May 2023, from 5 PM to 6.30 PM SGT at the Hinrich Foundation’s Singapore office, located in the heart of Clarke Quay, for a better understanding of how to manage today’s geoeconomic and geopolitical uncertainties.
Virtual access to the session is also available to all registrants.
