Visual Event Trade Brussels 19.09.

In our rapidly changing world, new economic powers are on the rise that are challenging our current systems. As old certainties wane, new paradigms such as resilience are required. Please join us for a discussion that will explore how EU trade policy should respond to an environment shaped by economic relations that are ever more volatile, and complex. We will also assess the role of trade policy in the EU’s wider agenda and where further potential lies.
