Trade Facilitation for the Circular Economy

Date: Friday, 3 June
Time: 10:30-11:30 CEST

Description: This Circular Economy session will dive into the opportunities of the circular economy and, while recognizing the need for the Basel Convention, address how challenges with movement of secondary materials could be addressed through optimizing technology and procedures not only to strengthen the convention but also to help the global need for re-use of valuable resources which play vital roles in for example our energy transformation and housing of people across the world.
