The biennial Trade and Sustainable Development Symposium, organised by the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) and held alongside the WTO ministerial conference for over a decade, is the leading multi-stakeholder platform for intellectual enquiry and dialogue on sustainable development and the global trade and investment system. It acts as an inclusive platform outside of the WTO negotiating setting for sharing ideas, engaging in dialogue, and influencing trade policy negotiations. Drawing in participants from government, business and civil society, the Symposium helps to maintain and elaborate a global vision of sustainable development in trade and investment policymaking.

To advance and encourage sustainable trade, all actors in supply chains, from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to large multinational companies, as well as governments, must be involved. The session will present innovative approaches that help empower upstream value-chain actors and connect them with downstream buyers. Speakers will discuss specifc case studies from Latin America and beyond that address issues such as traceability, market inefficiencies, the need for capacity building and harmonization of voluntary sustainability standards, and how to make inclusive trade the norm.
