As the US Administration threatens to further unlevel the playing field for global trade, what does this mean for the global economy, global commerce and business growth? How will governments respond, and what should businesses do to mitigate the possible negative impacts and leverage the opportunities it may provide?

In this follow-up to our Window on Trade of last year, this month’s panel will focus on the following questions:

  • What details are emerging from the US trade policy actions as they evolve?
  • What will this mean for global growth?
  • Which sectors and countries are hurt most, and how do foreign governments (e.g. China, Canada, Europe) respond?
  • How should businesses respond to the unlevel playing field?
