Azevêdo: Global trading system has constructive role to play to help drive inclusivity

Speaking at a Trade Dialogues conference on “Technology, Globalisation and World Trade Governance” on 30 October, Director-General Roberto Azevêdo highlighted the important role the multilateral trading system can play to help maximise the opportunities presented by technology and to mitigate any adverse effects. He said that new technologies are completely transforming the way in which goods, services and information are produced and exchanged so “we need to respond and adapt”. He added: “Working together, we can ensure that the global economic system is more inclusive, and that its benefits can reach everyone.”
