Grand multilateral trade deals such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership are things of the past, but international trade--and the need for modernization to meet the current and evolving challenges involved--remains of paramount importance. Private-sector leaders, policy experts, and foreign dignitaries will discuss how the rules of California-Asia trade are changing and the strategies being created in response.

  • How will new patterns of trade and policy affect the world's busiest ports and the economies that rely upon them?
  • Will the decline of multilateral trade give rise to a new trade superpower?
  • How will the Pacific Rim countries collaborate and compete in the changing political environment?
