Bertelsmann Stiftung’s Future of Global Trade Governance Report

In mid July, Bertelsmann Stiftung’s High-Level Board of Experts released their report on the future of global trade governance.

Prepared independent of the WTO, the report provides conclusions and recommendations reflecting the views of the experts involved. The report is available online from the WTO website, for consultation and download.

Read the full report here, at the bottom of the news announcement on the WTO website:聽https://www.wto.org/english/news_e/news18_e/trdev_17jul18_e.htm
