    The past year has seen numerous shifts in international trade and investment globally. With the United States’ withdrawal from the Trans Pacific Partnership and increasing rumbles of protectionism in U.S. policy toward Asian nations, the current state of global trade and investment in Asia is in flux. This panel will explore a broad range of issues dealing with trade and foreign investment across Asia, including the shift toward multilateral regional trade agreements (TPP, RCEP, APEC) and bilateral trade agreements, and multilateral and bilateral investment treaties and agreements including the 1987 and 2009 ASEAN agreements. The panel will explore cutting edge developments including new treaties and agreements covering goods and services, intellectual property rights, agriculture, and foreign direct investment. Panelists will explore the implications of these trends for national and regional economic development, and trade with other global regions.

    A virtual business meeting was held prior to the Annual Meeting.
