Critics blame it for the loss of manufacturing jobs, environmental degradation, and disruptions to supplies of vital goods like food, medicine, and energy. Geopolitical tensions are rising. As a result, major players are raising barriers to trade and foreign investment while offering subsidies for domestic production. The question now facing policymakers, business leaders, and international organizations: Can globalization be reshaped to accommodate legitimate national concerns while maintaining trade as an engine of green, inclusive, and resilient development? What are the new opportunities for developing countries to leverage trade for development? Join us for a discussion hosted by the World Bank and the Peterson Institute for International Economics.\n\nGo to event page: https://live.worldbank.org/events/driving-global-trade-development?intcid=ECR_CA_WBLCalendar_EN_EXT\n\nWe look forward to seeing you!\n\nWorld Bank Live - https://live.worldbank.org\nBringing you the Faces and Voices of Development Online
