Recent developments in international trade and their implications for the policymaking process

4 May 2018, Room XXVI, delivered by the Division on International Trade in Goods and Services, and Commodities

International trade and the instruments governing it have changed in many ways during the past few years. The purpose of this course is to inform delegates about major developments in international trade and the changing use of trade policy instruments. The course will present some of the patterns of international trade observed in recent years and their underlying factors. The course will also provide insights into the use and importance of various trade policy instruments, as well as an overview of persisting trade imbalances, their causes and implications, and their relationship to trade policies. Finally, the course will discuss some of the implications of the stalled trade policymaking process at the multilateral level. During the course, delegates will gain awareness of any relevant links to the Sustainable Development Goals.
