The character of export-led growth - which powered Asia rise and prosperity over several decades - seems to have fundermentally altered since the 2008 global financial crisis. Asia's trade grew nearly twice as fast as the region's GDP until the crisis but has slowed considerably since then. Sri Lanka has emphased open trade and investment policies since 1977 and is presently embarking on a more active trade policy based on free trade agreements amid a fragile global economy. Key questions for business and policy makers in Sri Lanka and elsewhere in Asia are what explains the trade slowdown, whether the slowdown could become the new normal for the region and what policies can foster new sources of trade growth. This seminar will deal with these key questions and explore implications for Sri Lanka.
