The ESCAP Committee on Trade and Investment – the key platform for regional dialogue and intergovernmental collaboration on trade and investment — will also convene its seventh session during the Week, from 27 to 29 January 2021.
The Committee will review recent trends and developments in trade and investment in Asia and the Pacific such as the impacts of rising protectionism and the COVID-19 pandemic, and promoting inward and outward foreign direct investment in the post-COVID-19 era.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to change the way we live and work. To ensure the safety and wellbeing of all participants as well as taking into account the on-going travel restrictions in many countries, the Seventh Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Week will be held in virtual format with delegates to join virtually through KUDO videoconference platform.
Drawing on the presence of senior policymakers from across the Asia-Pacific region, the week hosts a number of engaging events related to trade and investment policy making, covering areas such as trade facilitation, trade and investment agreements, science, technology and innovation (STI) policies and responsible business practices.
