About the product

In the climate of great political uncertainty and economic slowdown, countries may be tempted to turn inwards by erecting protectionist barriers. Yet, there could not be a more important time to ensure that the openness of the world trading system is safeguarded and promoted. This compendium of papers considers some of the issues and promotes a greater understanding, which should lead to enhanced policy decision-making for a strengthened multilateral trading system and a peaceful future.
