This webinar will present and discuss some possible policy responses and measures that Governments could take with a view to improving the situation on trade policy in the midst of the COVID19 crisis and future global health crises. This could include proposals on tariff reductions, restraints on export controls, etc.. The goal is to explore what the talks might be about and what form they should take.
