What's on at the BSCC - Geneva Chapter // Events // By Mark // Oct. 9, 2019

Trade is a major issue at the moment. The US President, Donald Trump, is using trade as a weapon to get what he wants from different countries across the world – especially China – and then there's Brexit, where Britain hopes to reshape its global relationship.

The talk will be at the WTO headquarters in Geneva on Tuesday 29th October.
