AIG Global Trade Series 2022 Podcast Episode 5

Women and Trade


This podcast covers the relationship between global trade and gender equality.
Unlocking the economic potential of women is key to unlocking development and growth opportunities. But are opportunities created by international trade also opportunities for gender equality? What steps can be taken to ensure that international trade and globalisation empower women and what role can new technologies play?
