An understanding of the impact of international organizations on trade between nations and multi-national enterprises is fundamental to a business leader’s ability to navigate and capitalize on opportunities to sustain a company. Of particular note are the World Trade Organization (WTO) , the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), sister organizations GATS & TRIPS, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Research and assess these organizations and agreements in a 10 page white paper plus citations and appendix of data and charts to support your work. The major topics should include:
History (post World War II) of how each came into formation – Include participants, objectives and early challenges
Evolution of each to present – Key milestones and changes, events catalyzing the evolution, overall impact and efectiveness
Practical application to current issues – membership composition, governing bodies, arbitration process, examples of dispute interventions and outcomes
What is the path forward for:
the European Union and Brexit,
Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
As a business leader, how would you manage international trade opportunities to benefit your stakeholders?
There should be a robust level of research, data and analysis – with full citations from a variety of sources. Given the ever growing challenge to navigate the rules and regulations of international trade, business leaders must have a base of knowledge about this area on international business.
