The AIG Global Trade Series 2021 examines the ongoing transformation of the world’s multilateral trading system.

During the pandemic, trade nationalism emerged as countries pursued self-interested policies to shield themselves from the impact of the virus – from vaccine rollouts to supply chain reshoring and restricting access to critical medical supplies. 

In this podcast, moderator Rem Korteweg of the Clingendael Institute is joined by Mary E. Lovely, Senior Fellow, The Peterson Institute, and John W.H. Denton AO, Secretary General of the International Chamber of Commerce.  Listen as they discuss how best to ensure a global post-COVID-19 economic recovery which avoids a return to protectionism and is open, fair and equitable.

How can new trade barriers in the post-COVID-19 world be avoided and can trade even be part of the answer to future pandemic preparedness?
