This year’s WTO Public Forum will consider what sustainable trade will look like in 2030 and beyond. Under the main theme of “Trade 2030”, the Public Forum’s sub-themes will be sustainable trade, technology-enabled trade, and a more inclusive trading system. Working Sessions will cover a number of issues including green fiscal reform:
