Are we heading for a global trade war? The trade policies of the current US government are raising concerns that are heading for a trade war between the world’s largest economies, Meanwhile US moves to block the appointment of judges to the World Trade Organisation’s Appellate Body are placing the organisation’s future in question. Is this the end of the global trading system as we know it, or are these concerns greatly exaggerated?

This panel discussion brings together senior practitioners and academics to dig below the headlines to carefully examine the trade policies of the US, China and the European Union, and analyse their implications for the future of the global trading system.
