The imposition of punitive economic actions against partners to achieve foreign policy objectives has become increasing prevalent. Coercive economic practices undermine confidence in rules-based approaches and, if left unchecked, could further damage the fragile global trading system. Meanwhile, governments are struggling with how to most effectively respond to such measures.
The Asia Society Policy Institute is pleased to host a webinar to explore potential collective policy tools to respond to economic coercion and unfair trade practices. The discussion will also navigate how the WTO, G7, and other international institutions can help deter economic coercion, and what tools and strategies counties can develop to better cope with this challenge in times of economic uncertainty.
Please join us for an online discussion moderated by ASPI Vice President Wendy Cutler, featuring Victor Cha, Senior Vice President for Asia and Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Mariko Togashi, Research Fellow for Japanese Security and Defense Policy at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, and others to be announced.
