Trade 2030 - WTO Public Forum

Technology is transforming our lives and our economies — including the way we trade. As the pace of change continues to increase, this year's WTO Public Forum considered the main theme “Trade 2030” and sub-themes on sustainable trade, technology-enabled trade, and a more inclusive trading system. The Forum offered an opportunity for policy makers and representatives of government, business, workers, consumers, civil society and others to discuss how emerging developments will affect the multilateral trading system, and how we can ensure that trade in 2030 will continue to help us address the major issues facing our economies and societies.
