The recent addition of a chapter on trade and gender to modernize the 20-year-old Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement, and the chapter on trade and gender between Chile-Uruguay have set a new standard. Will the EU now follow suit and reinforce the coordination and supervision of women’s rights in trade? Share in our dynamic discussion with private sector and member states articulating how gender is a genuine core trade issue and why it is of increasing importance to negotiators, governments, and the business community.

How do we apply gender perspective to economic and trade issues to ensure that economic growth benefits everyone? What are the modern frameworks on issues related to trade and gender, including women’s entrepreneurship and development of gender-focused indicators? How do we encourage women’s participation in national and international economies including but going beyond entrepreneurship ? How can free open progressive trade be harnessed to help us achieve Sustainable Development Goal #5?
