It is time for a new trade paradigm. Beyond the pandemic. Trade recovery will have to be in the centre of any financial recovery plan post-C19/CV. We will need more extensive FTAs than ever before, including one between the EU and UK.
And we will need it fast.
Some people say that the waves of protectionism we have seen the last years will increase even more after the corona virus outbreak.
I have a different view. On the contruary. I believe that we will see a number of new trade development initiatives to kock-start the wheels of our economy. This is the time for a new trade paradigm.
