I intend to cover very briefly six topics today:
- World Trade and the Diamond Jubilee of the Multilateral Trading System (MTS)
- Managing the US-China Strategic Competition
- Whether the World is Dividing into Two Trading Blocs
- The Current State of US Trade Policy
- The Evolving US-Japan Relationship, CPTPP and the WTO
- The Future of International Trade – with Recommendations
I will conclude with some thoughts on what role business can and should play in shaping policy.
