The OECD Global Forums on Trade bring together trade policy makers, academics, industry representatives and other experts from OECD and non-OECD countries to exchange views on current trade policy issues. It is often with a focus on issues of importance in trade relations between developed and developing countries and on the role of the international community in supporting developing countries with their integration efforts.
The Global Forum on Trade conference series is organised under the auspices of the OECD’s Trade Committee in support of its objective to “improve understanding of the benefits and costs of further trade liberalisation, so as to increase support for an open, rules-based multilateral trading system".
The 2016 Global Forum on Trade took place on 2 November, 2016 in Paris. Sign up for OECD Trade Newsletters to receive e-mail updates on the latest developments.
