Despite the US withdrawal from the TPP, trade agreements remain high on the political agenda. Prime Minister Abe is still seeking to promote trade with Japan, and an open trading system. Where will international trade agreements go? How will Japanese products compete overseas? Will Japanese markets open up more to global competition? Are bilateral FTAs the “creative evolution” to move past the volatility of multilateral deals? What role will China play, in the wake of the pro-globalization speech given by President Xi Jinping in at the World Economic Forum last January? How should businesses prepare? Our panelists gather to discuss the future of global trade.
