Expert Group and Task Force Workshops

Second Session with Business Executives

15 December 2014 , Geneva

Dec 4 call with business

ICTSD and the World Economic Forum hosted an interactive web/video/telephone discussion bringing together members from the E15 Expert Groups on Services, Trade and Innovation, Task Force on Subsidies, Functioning of the WTO, and RTAs and Plurilaterals as well as relevant business executives on 15 December 2014.

This call gave business executives very brief updates on the discussions taking place in several of the E15 Expert Groups. It provided an opportunity for brief input from a broader set of business voices and cross-fertilization of ideas between the groups to prompt deeper subsequent interactions.

Twelve business executives from organizations including Credit Suisse, Nestle, Novartis, and UPS participated in the call and provided input on the business-related aspects of E15 ideas and policy options.
