ICC SECRETARY GENERAL'S LETTER IN FINANCIAL TIMES

Location: Paris

Date: 15/06/2018 

As the prospect of a “trade war” gradually escalates, we must all bear in mind what is currently at stake in broader systemic terms. The rules-based multilateral trading system has fuelled seven decades of unprecedented job creation and poverty alleviation. 
Communities connected by commerce have a common interest in maintaining peace. The World Trade Organization has proved itself the linchpin of what is — by any objective measure — a more prosperous world order. And with the right reforms it can do more to help families and workers the world over.
