In the second part of this podcast, Swedish Minister for Trade Ewa Björling and GMF Senior Transtlantic Fellow Jim Kolbe discuss with European Center for International Political Economy Director Frederik Erixon the current stagnation in global trade policy that has led to a near halt of multilateral negotiations.
