Category

Date
Tuesday, 05 September 2017
Venue

The hearing will aim to identify how trade and investment policies can contribute to the achievement of SDGs.

The main questions which will be discussed during the debate will include:

  • Can trade and sustainable development be mutually reinforcing?
  • How can trade policy be used as a tool for implementing  the SDGs? Are there any concrete examples from the EU trade and investment policy that can be used as best practices?
  • Are there SDGs, which are particularly  dependent on the existence on an open, rule-based, equitable multilateral trade system? 
  • What should be the role of private sector in achieving SDGs through trade and investment policies?
  • Can civil society be instrumental in achieving SDGs through trade policy?
  • How can ''Aid for trade'' be an efficient tool for achieving SDGs?
