After almost half a century as an EU member state, the UK is about to become an autonomous member of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). For some, this represents an exciting opportunity. But what is the value of WTO membership? And given the multiple challenges that the rules-based trading system is facing at present, can Britain be a force for good in securing a more reliable trading environment? To explore all this and more, Chris Horseman is joined by Minako Morita-Jaeger, Fellow of the UK Trade Policy Observatory; Patrick Low, Former Chief of Staff and Chief Economist at the WTO, and Fellow of the UK Trade Policy Observatory; and Amar Breckenridge, Senior Associate at Frontier Economics.
