Global Tables on Trade, Investment, and Growth
At the core of the Digital Global Solutions Summit are Global Tables, each tackling the T20 and G20 agenda as well as generating policies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Global Tables are filled with keynotes, discussions, interviews and impulse statements by high-ranking representatives from research, politics, business and civil society.
While the world economy continues to be as connected by trade in goods and services as never before, the institutions governing global trade face an enduring crisis. Complemented by my-country-first narratives and rising tariff barriers by an increasing number of political leaders around the world, free trade is challenged. New types of trade, in services and data, create new challenges and require multilateral agreements to adequately govern them. And the COVID-19 pandemic makes the weaknesses of the optimized global production networks apparent. All these issues and problems have in common that the people can no longer fully benefit from trade. After a long period with a trading system fulfilling predominantly corporate interests, it is now time to step back and ensure a trading system that is centered on human needs and gains and that benefits all countries. This Global Table will discuss the required policy approaches.
