Farm Foundation and CAPI Partner to host Digital Dialogue Series on the Future of Global Agricultural Trade

[OAK BROOK, Ill.] As we navigate the fast-changing global context of COVID-19 and the ripple effects on agricultural trade worldwide, Farm Foundation and the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute (CAPI) are partnering to host a Digital Dialogue series entitled Managing Agricultural Trade in an Increasingly Chaotic World. 

The series, consisting of two dialogues on July 8, 2020 and July 22, 2020, will bring together experts with diverse backgrounds from the United States, Canada, the European Union, and Australia to add their unique insights to these critical conversations. Panelists will provide their views on the state of global agricultural trade in the current context, while also presenting proposals for improving the future of global agricultural markets. 

The first dialogue, entitled The Future of the Multilateral System, to be held on Wednesday, July 8 (10:00 am CDT/11:00 am EDT), will focus on the recent trade disruptions and their implications for agri-food markets, the ability of the multilateral system to bring about solutions and the future of the multilateral system. Speakers include John Clarke, EU European Commission, Peter Clark, Grey, Clark Shih and Associates, Ltd., Alan Oxley, European Centre for International Political Economy, and Joe Glauber, International Food Policy Research Institute.

Building on the first, the second dialogue, entitled Sustainability and Efficient Trade, to be held on Wednesday, July 22 (10:00 am CDT/11:00 am EDT), will examine how existing agreements and systems may suppress growth and discourage reform, as well as how disruptors and others can effect positive change in multilateral trade dialogues to ensure a global, sustainable future for food.
