Global trade growth has slowed in recent years. Weak import volumes, particularly in leading emerging markets, deceleration of growth in China and sluggish global economic activity amid continued geopolitical tensions suggest a subdued outlook for global trade in 2016 and beyond.

This Chatham House conference will focus on the evolution of global trade governance, the implications for economic growth and political relationships, as well as the outlook for trade finance and the effect of service-based and digital trade on the global economy. To enable as open a debate as possible, this conference will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
