Globalization and the governance of the international trading system are facing strong headwinds. Several countries are experiencing strong protectionist pressures and a few global firms are becoming ever larger and dominant, threatening competition. Digitization, automation and artificial intelligence will change how economic production and exchange will take place in the future, affecting economic policies in areas such as trade, taxation, competition and regulation. What should Canada do in this context?
Please join The School of Public Policy, the Centre for International Governance Innovation and the CN-Paul M. Tellier Chair on Business and Public Policy at the University of Ottawa for a must-attend symposium for anyone who depends on trade or is interested in the future of the economy.
