More inclusive trade will be a vital component of a post-COVID economy and we want to hear from you
The international trading system pre-Covid-19 pandemic did not provide full opportunities for all strata of society to benefit from international trade.
Beyond its human tragedy, the economic impacts of the pandemic, with national lockdowns shutting key elements of economic activity and global supply chains, have led to the most drastic slowdown in economic activity since the Great Depression.
Crises of this magnitude offer an opportunity for reflection as reconstruction and recovery begins.
If you are a business owner representing any of the following groups it is vital that we hear from you:
