SEE Seminar
The Future of Global Trade

18 April 2018

18:30 - 20:00, drinks reception to follow

Location: Herringham Hall, Regent's University London

The growth of international trade since World War Two has been striking. Between 1950 and 2007 it grew by an average of 6.2 per cent a year, outstripping rises in global GDP.

But since the global financial crisis, the post-war trade boom has been under threat. Free trade faces major challenges, including:

  • Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ policy
  • Claims that trade is creating an underclass, trapped in low-paid, low-skilled work
  • Failure to agree a new multilateral world trade agreement since the 1990s

Join Sir Martin Donnelly KCB, until recently head of the UK’s International Trade Department, Vicky Pryce and Shanker Singham will debate the future of global trade at this critical juncture.
