The resolution of tensions in the international trade relations and of the deep crisis of the multilateral fora will shape the course of the global economy and its sustainability for the decades to come. What is the way forward for the EU trade policy in these turbulent times? How can trade help attain the Sustainable Development Goals?

At INTA's fourth Trade Policy Day, DG Trade's Director General Sabine Weyand and other distinguished speakers from international organisations (OECD, UNCTAD, WTO), academia, and stakeholders' organisations will exchange their views about these topics.
