Executive Briefing | AIan Wolff, Deputy Director General of the WTO (Melbourne)VIEW EVENT DETAILS
How do we maintain a rules-based economic order?
As the global trade order comes under pressure from the US-China trade war, technological disruption and geopolitical upheaval, the role of the global institutions becomes even more crucial in maintaining the rules-based economic order. Foremost among these institutions is the World Trade Organization.
Global Victoria and Asia Society Australia warmly invite you to a morning tea briefing with Ambassador Alan Wolff, Deputy Director-General of the World Trade Organisation and leading expert and practitioner in global trade
Ambassador Wolff will provide a briefing on the current issues in the global trade system, the reform of the World Trade Organization, and the role of middle powers such as Australia in safeguarding and advancing the global trade system.

A conversation with Ambassador Wolff will be facilitated by Philipp Ivanov, CEO of Asia Society Australia.
