In this first episode, our focus is on international trade policy, where it’s headed and what it might mean for the agri-food sector. This is in fact the first of a two-part series on international trade policy. In part two we’ll return to look at policy in Europe and the EU, but in this first podcast, the focus is primarily on the United States. 


So in this era of growing scepticism about the benefits of globalisation, with the election of Donald Trump in the USA and with Brexit shaking up the European Union, are we heading for a new paradigm in which long-term expansion in international trade is no longer a political priority? Or will the imperatives of economic growth inevitably re-assert themselves once the initial shocks have been absorbed?

To discuss these questions and no doubt many more, Editorial Director, Chris Horseman, speaks to Roger Bernard, Policy Analyst with IEG.
