The World Trade Organization (WTO) is losing its position as the center of global trade governance. Without its leadership, regional trade agreements have taken over. Many “formerly dominant” nations are concerned that current global trade rules largely benefit emerging economies, but developing countries insist that poverty and food security should remain top priorities. The World Economic Forum presents a strong argument for a return to WTO centrality. getAbstract recommends this nuanced, multidimensional report to government and corporate policy-makers.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why the World Trade Organization (WTO) is no longer at the center of global trade,
- Why a central authority is vital to a stable economic environment and
- How the WTO might regain its central role in global trade policy
