Our Impact

Towards a new global agreement to facilitate investment for development

Our Initiatives

We need to identify ways trade can help rebuild a greener global economy. This community of experts is advancing dialogue, research, and projects.

This effort seeks to harness digital trade in services, one of the most dynamic sectors in the global economy, to aid the global economic recovery.

This is a public-private partnership dedicated to reducing the time and cost required to conduct trade, and to removing obstacles to the global supply chain.

This initiative brings together business and government to address investment challenges and unlock their potential, informed by experts, experience and evidence.
