Date & time
Asia-Pacific countries are currently involved in negotiations over new regional trade arrangements. It is uncertain whether these regional economic agreements will be complementary and contribute to regional and global trade, or whether they will fragment global trade and inhibit regional economic integration.
With Australia hosting the G20 in 2014, it is both timely and important to address the relevant issues in regional and global trade. This public forum brings together distinguished experts to discuss the current regional agreements in place, as well as new issues and the global trading system.
