Under President Donald Trump’s “America First” policy, the US has sought major trade renegotiatiations, including deals with the EU, negotiations with China, and NAFTA. Many traditional alliances are becoming fractured. Is a trade war inevitable, or has it already started? What would it look like, and what could be done to prevent it from worsening? Should we promote bilateral deals or multilateral frameworks? How would the global value chain be affected with more protectionism? Japan has the potential to lead a TPP, which, even without the US, could be a potential solution. Is this still realistic? How would business be affected? Experts from the US, China, the EU, and Japan gathered for this G1 Global panel to discuss this important issue.
