This week, Associate Professor Walid Hejazi moderates our webinar and welcomes renowned economists Professor Daniel Trefler and Chad Bown to discuss the geopolitical impact of the COVID-19 crisis on international trade and supply chains. With global financial uncertainty putting the modern reliance on cross-border supply chains under a microscope, there is a growing fear of skyrocketing trade barriers. Trefler and Bown will examine the current geopolitical landscape and the potential impact of increased protectionist measures, and how it could affect business here in Canada. Join them as they unravel the need for a coordinated international political commitment to safeguard the economy both at home in Canada, and on a global scale.
