Special Trade Commission

Increasing economic openness has already lifted billions out of poverty. In all regions of the world, open trade and competitive markets have been amongst the most consistent drivers of prosperity. Today, extending this openness is more important than ever before, with many nations confronted by an array of economic challenges, from growing inequality to increasing protectionism. Our Special Trade Commission brings together the world’s foremost trade experts to examine how promoting open trade, competition and the safeguarding of property rights can build greater prosperity, promoting growth and extending opportunity across the globe.
