Thematic Seminar on Trade and Competition Policy: Reviewing Practical Experience with Existing WTO Agreements

14 - 15 July 2016 , Geneva, Switzerland


On 14-15 July, the World Trade Organization will organise a seminar in which E15 experts have been invited to participate. Pedro Roffe (Senior Associate, ICTSD) and Katarina Hruba (Manager, Centre for the Global Agenda, World Economic Forum) will present the policy options emerging from the E15 Expert Group on Competition Policy. They will be speaking alongside members of the WTO Secretariat, as well as representatives from academia and international organisations. The policy options provide solutions for improving the international competition ecosystem to reinforce the international trade agenda; applying competition policy to optimise current international trade frameworks; and harnessing the power of free trade agreements as vehicles for incremental harmonisation of competition laws and practices.

This is a private event and attendance is by invitation only.
