Azevêdo: We must face the challenges of a new industrial revolution

Speaking at the International Monetary Conference in Washington D.C. on 4 June, Director-General Roberto Azevêdo said that at a time of fundamental economic change dominated by automation and new technologies, we need to find ways to shape the new economy in a way that benefits all, to speak up for the trading system as a powerful force for growth and development and to be ready to evolve to meet the challenges of today. He concluded: “We have the chance to ensure that this revolution is truly inclusive, to reshape the debate, and to ensure that a modern, responsive trading system is part of the solution.”
