Event Summary

The World Trade Organization (WTO) has been instrumental to China's trade rise, providing a framework for greater certainty, stability, and increased market openness. China has become, in its own right, an active and influential player in the organization. But the WTO is facing an existential crisis. Where does China stand on the WTO's state of play? How does China view WTO reform and how could it contribute to strengthen global trade cooperation? Is China ready to help save the WTO? Joining this episode of Trade Winds were:
