This is the second in a series of web-only events by the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) entitled “Coronavirus, Asia, and the World.” In the coming weeks, ASPI will be presenting web-only programs every Tuesday and Thursday to analyze the full scope of the ramifications from the novel coronavirus for the region and the world. All events will be live-streamed on YouTube and Facebook. For information about future events in this series and for ASPI’s additional coronavirus content see here.
The coming year was expected to be a big one for global trade. U.S. negotiators planned to hold talks with counterparts from the UK, EU, Brazil, India, Japan, and Africa, and purchases and reforms that China had committed to in the Phase One agreement were expected to be carried out. Much of that will now have to be delayed or put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this Coronavirus, Asia, and the World webcast, ASPI Vice President Wendy Cutler will discuss the impact of coronavirus on international trade, and the concrete steps that trade leaders can take to deal with the coronavirus crisis and the economic fallout, the role that the WTO and other international organizations should play, and what impact the virus is having on trade flows and supply chains in the Indo Pacific and around the world.
