The role of trade in the global economy is at a critical juncture. Over the last twenty years trade has lifted the incomes and living standards of millions of people across the globe. At the same time, a slowdown in the pace of trade reform and a post-crisis uptick in protectionism have been a challenge for free trade and productivity growth.
