Abstract:
In collaboration with the Korea Development Institute, this program will build on Salzburg Global's longstanding program focused on global economic challenges and governance. Following the Bali WTO Summit on the Doha Round and the anticipated completion of the TransPacific Partnership, the program will provide a neutral setting to advance five strategic goals:

Critically assess the Bali WTO summit's outcomes to identify future options and renew international momentum for the multilateral trading system;

Catalyze issue leadership to propose a strategic roadmap that can nimbly address critical challenges as they emerge;

Analyze the impact of large-scale regional trade agreements on the multilateral trade framework, including the TransPacific Partnership and the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP);

Leverage G20 input through Australian participation early in its G20 Presidency, to help define a role for the G20 in the global trade landscape; and

Engage key countries in the Asia-Pacific Basin and Global South for inclusive leadership on trade governance.

The program will include government and business leaders involved in large-scale trade deals, including those seeking to secure WTO-level progress; WTO directors at G20 Ministries of Commerce/Trade (with priority placed on the inclusion of middle sized economices concerned about a level global playing field); leading academics and researchers; the International Chamber of Commerce; as well as globally influential journalists. Commissioned papers will be circulated to participants ahead of the meeting to provide a springboard for debate.
