RIETI and CEPR are pleased to announce another annual RIETI-CEPR symposium, held yearly since 2014.

This year's symposium will be held under the theme of "The Future of the Global Trade Order and Economic Security.

As economic globalization is reversed by the U.S.-China confrontation and Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the world trade order and economic security have become important themes in today's international community.

The symposium will feature speakers including Professor Beatrice Weder di Mauro, Director of CEPR, Dr. Jeffrey Schott of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, Dr. Shujiro Urata, Chairman Emeritus of RIETI among others. Participants will discuss how the EU and Japan can restore the troubled global trade order and how they can cooperate in economic security area.
