Geneva Dialogue:

A conversation with global leaders hosted by the Secretary-General of UNCTAD

It is clear that the multilateral trading system is in crisis, as indicated by the results — or lack thereof — of the last WTO Ministerial conference.

While some major players are opting for economic nationalism, and while the trade negotiation track is stalling, how can we ensure that the achievement of the ambitious goals set in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is not held back?

In this context, business as usual is not an option. In today’s global, interconnected, deregulated, and fast changing environment, the consequences of the status quo would be detrimental, in particular for the most vulnerable countries.

In order for trade not to be lost as an enabler for development, the international trade community needs to work together to urgently address issues such as fisheries subsidies (SDG 14) or food security (SDG 2).

What role can the United Nations and its Member States play in finding consensus on trade and development issues?

Where does the international trade community go from here, at this uncertain time for multilateralism?

In line with its mandate to create a better and more effective system of international economic cooperation, UNCTAD can provide a platform for collective action.
