The trade seminar series is held monthly (Tuesdays, 12:30-2pm). It covers relevant and up-to-date topics in international trade and development. We frequently invite external speakers from top academic institutions and the development community to present the latest research results in the area. Both internal and external audience are welcome to participate in the lively seminars.

The presentations are in various stages of preparation. Additional suggestions are welcome and should be sent to Paulo Bastos at pbastos@worldbank.org. For copies of the paper presented and to request visitor passes, please contact Anna Regina Rillo Bonfield at abonfield@worldbank.org.
