Ten years after the global financial crisis, the recovery of the global economy appears to be losing momentum, thus entailing significant downside risks for international finance and trade. These risks and the concrete actions required to enhance mid-to-long term growth potential represent the mandate and the rationale of the working agenda for the 2019 G20 meetings that Japan will host in June.
How should the 2019 G20 meetings respond to the spreading lack of trust placed in the WTO? How can the Japanese presidency provide the 2019 G20 meetings with a coherent framework to foster dialogue and offer solutions to avoid a new global crisis? And finally, does the cooperative framework inspired by the EU and Japan provide a powerful example against the neo-protectionist tendencies currently putting the governance and stability of the global economy at risk?
"Re-Launching International Trade. Joining Forces in the Japanese G20 Meetings and beyond" brought together high-level experts from international think tanks, policymakers, businesspeople and other stakeholders to discuss these issues (by invitation only).
