GEG’s Deputy Director Dr Emily Jones has joined a team of world-class experts and institutions tasked with generating strategic analysis and recommendations for government, business, and civil society to help strengthen the global trade and investment system.
The E15 Group on Trade, Finance and Development examines how trade and finance could be leveraged for sustainable development in poor economies, looking beyond traditional thinking to propose long-term and innovative policy options for key development actors and the international community. The group is convened by the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD), the World Economic Forum, and the Center for International Development at Harvard University (CID).
Through discussions and targeted analytical work, the group will work towards presenting concrete alternatives for the international community to consider in time for the 20th anniversary of the World Trade Organization at the end of 2015, and the World Economic Forum’s 2016 Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters.
