The Future of Trade - Research Forum


The Future of Trade - Research Forum


As the World Trade Organization has observed: ‘Technology is transforming our lives and our economies — including the way we trade.’

This event will consider how digital technologies – such as electronic commerce, fintech, artificial intelligence, blockchain, 3D Printing, the Internet of Things, robotics, and advanced manufacturing – will transform world trade in the future.

This symposium explore some of the opportunities that such technologies will bring for countries, multinational companies, SMEs, and citizens.

This event highlights the need for the reform and adjustment of international trade rules to better take into account such new technologies. Current international frameworks are currently ill-suited to the digital economy.

This event will also consider such public policy challenges – as e-commerce rules, financial regulation, data protection, privacy protection, cybersecurity, and intellectual property.

This forum will provide an opportunity to discuss how these developments will affect trade and multi-lateral trade system. This event will also consider the inter-relationship between trade and sustainable development in its consideration of new technologies. In particular, it will take into account larger concerns about culture, education, health-care, equality, and inclusion.
