About the Hinrich Trade Negotiation Simulation

With ongoing changes to trade relations in Asia and around the world, skilled trade negotiators and representatives will play a critical role in reshaping the future of trade. Through the Hinrich Trade Negotiation Simulation, experienced trade negotiators provide university students and young professionals the opportunity to participate in a life-like negotiation for a multi-lateral free trade agreement.

By working through the dynamics of international trade negotiations, participants develop practical skills in persuasion and diplomacy. It aims to encourage an open and informative dialogue on global trade issues through a better understanding of how we can balance national interests with the needs of the international community.
