How might trade agreements evolve to incorporate investment, 'behind the border' issues, or intellectual property? As major trade agreements are discussed worldwide, it's time to consider the next generation of these pacts.

The Centre for International Governance Innovation is organizing a meeting to consider today's key trade issues and map a way forward. Interim Director of the Global Economy Program Paul Jenkins will offer opening remarks, and presentations will be made by Senior Fellow Dan Ciuriak, Statistics Canada and Global Affairs Canada. A discussion will follow.
