The existing global framework for collaboration on trade and intellectual property rights has increasingly come under stress. New 21st century-style international trade agreements, the extensive global reach of digital technologies, and recent political shifts against multilateralism will have major implications on how businesses and governments operate around the world.

By attending this webcast, viewers will be able to answer the following questions:

  • What major global economic and political trends underlie the changes in global coordination of trade and intellectual property rights?
  • How have multilateral organizations responded to those challenges thus far? 
  • What are the best proposals for a revamp, and which have the biggest chance of success? 
  • How should businesses respond to those challenges over short and long terms?

Who Should Attend: Thought leaders, senior executives and principal policy makers responsible for strategy, ESG, security and defense, corporate & country risk, innovation, marketing & communications, government affairs, legal and finance, public policy and human capital
