The Global Dialogue on Trade is a unique initiative to host a global consultation to support multilateral trade reform. It is supported by the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and regional development banks.

Digitally enabled and managed by ICC the Global Dialogue on Trade convenes open dialogue among multilateral institutions, think tanks and businesses from around the world, providing concrete support to the on-going intergovernmental approach to improving the multilateral rules-based trade system.

The platform seeks input from users of the global trading system to assess elements in the existing framework that work well, elements that should be improved and what should be addressed to help the WTO effectively deal with the challenges and disruptions of the 21st century.

The Global Dialogue on Trade was launched by ICC Secretary General John W.H. Denton AO and WTO Director General Roberto Azevedo on the sidelines of the 2018 Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank Group in Bali in October 2018.
