    The UK is crafting a new role for itself in the global trading system by pursuing bilateral trade agreements with the EU, the US, and Japan, while looking into potentially joining the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership and developing a dynamic presence in the WTO. What is the thinking behind the UK’s trade policy strategy? How is the COVID-19 pandemic impacting this trade strategy? Can the UK help revive global trade cooperation at a time of great trade confrontations and geostrategic rivalry? Joining this episode of Trade Winds to discuss are:

    Anabel González, Nonresident Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE)

    Elizabeth Truss, Member of Parliament, Secretary of State for International Trade, and President for the Board of Trade for the United Kingdom
    Adam S. Posen, President of the Peterson Institute for International Economics
