Exploring linkages between Circular Economy and Trade

Wednesday, December 15 at 15.00 – 16.45

This session discusses the relationship between trade and the Circular Economy (CE). International trade provides many opportunities to further environmental goals and CE , on the other hand creates new opportunities for economic diversification, value-creation and competitiveness for Viet Nam. The webinar will provide different viewpoints on how trade can be harnessed to accelerate a Circular Economy transition in Viet Nam in a way that is inclusive and leaves no one behind.
