HKU iCube Impact Series – The United Nation’s Trade and Development Report – Growth, Debt, and Climate: Realigning the Global Financial Architecture
The Institute of China Economy is delighted to co-organize the HKU iCube Impact Series – The United Nations’ Trade and Development Report” seminar with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), Asia Global Institute and HKU iCube on November 7, 2023 at The University of Hong Kong. In the Asian launch of the annual Trade and Development Report – Growth, Debt, and Climate: Realigning the Global Financial Architecture, our distinguished speaker, Mr. Richard Kozul-Wright from UNCTAD will highlight the latest findings and policy recommendations with the audience.
The Trade and Development Report is the United Nations’ flagship annual report on the global economic outlook. This year’s report projects stalling growth in the major economies, particularly in Europe, and highlights growing risks from the global environment for emerging economies, including trade and debt challenges. The report makes recommendations for policymakers to go beyond monetary policy to help the global economy, and advocates for reform of the global financial architecture to support greater mobilization of climate finance and reduce debt burdens in those vulnerable economies.
The event is sponsored by the HKU APEC Study Center.
