Is Asia the new home of dynamic trade?
As protectionism has been growing in Europe and the United States, countries in Asia and the Pacific have been expanding their economic ties. Regional governments have concluded the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Transpacific Partnership (CPTPP), the Digital Economy Partnership Agreement (DEPA), the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), and several important bilateral trade agreements in recent years. Guests from Singapore and Australia join to discuss how they see the future of globalization, international trade, and the World Trade Organization (WTO).
