ANNOUNCEMENT: Report Tackles Contentious Trade Issues and Upcoming Negotiations

January 9, 2014 - Progress on trade liberalization is likely a 2014 New Year’s resolution for many top policy makers. In anticipation of this, The Chicago Council on Global Affairs has released a report assessing the state of leading trade negotiations and the likely outcomes. The report summarizes expert insights from the “Frontiers of Economic Integration” event. See the full report (PDF).



On October 30, 2013, The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, in partnership with leading Chicago and international institutions, will present a by invitation-only day-long event on “Frontiers of Economic Integration” to examine the state of global trade and what the near and medium term will bring. Topics will include:
  • the state of trade in light of the global economic crisis;
  • major proposed agreements that could promote trade across the Atlantic (a US-EU deal) and the Pacific (TPP); and
  • trade policy in key sectors of the economy.
This meeting is a follow-up to the two-day global economy conference The Chicago Council hosted in May 2012, "Searching for Strategies to Restore Global Economic Stability and Growth." That event brought together senior policy practitioners, business leaders, academics, and thought leaders from select G8 and G20 countries who addressed key challenges confronting the global economy. It also produced a summary report (PDF) that was released in advance of the G8 Summit and the June 2012 G20 meeting in Mexico.

On October 29, 2013, The Chicago Council is hosting a public program with Governor John Engler on “Is Trade Policy Serving Business?” to kickoff the conference.
