The Threat of Protectionism – Human Error
What’s wrong with protectionism? How about “managed trade”? How protectionist is Trump? What does China’s “One Belt One Road” imply? What are the implications of Brexit? How will this affect the rest of Asia & Australia? What effect are minor parties having in Australia? Alan Oxley will cover this and more at the dinner.

He was a former Ambassador to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, the predecessor of the World Trade Organization.
