Atlantic Strategy Group on Global Trade

Rabat, Morocco

The Wider Atlantic Economy: An Integrated Space at Risk? 
The Atlantic Strategy Group (ASG) aims to strengthen the ability of countries around the Atlantic basin, north and south, to assess shared challenges and to achieve common objectives. 

This fifth edition of the ASG will focus on global trade in the Atlantic region at a time when globalization and trade regimes are under growing pressure. Global value chains are threatened by a temptation of the world economies to close and the fierce coming competition between the United States and China.  As a highly integrated economic space, societies around the Atlantic basin have a great deal at stake.
