World Trade Forum 2022 @ World Trade Institute
This year the World Trade Forum will focus on the shift from multilateral to a mix of plurilateral and unilateral approaches to managing systemic challenges.

The 2022 World Trade Forum, which is scheduled to take place from 23-24 September 2022, will bring together trade policy researchers and practitioners to discuss recent developments in global trade and investment.

The main themes of the conference will include the shift from multilateral to a mix of plurilateral and unilateral approaches to managing systemic challenges like climate change; the turn towards industrial policy; changes in value chain-based production and trade in response to COVID-19; policy dimensions of the digitalization of trade; and the state of play in multilateral governance of the global trading system.
