In its simplest form, trade should be beneficial for everyone involved. Goods and money are exchanged and everyone is better off. But global trade doesn’t work this way – instead it feeds the rich and exploits the poor. It traps people in poverty.
Only when we get trade right, can we end poverty.
Imagine if no matter how hard you worked today, you couldn’t afford to put food on the table. For millions of people around the world, that’s the reality they face. A fair income gives you freedom, security and hope for the future. It allows you to feed your family and educate your children. That is the power of trade done well. But unfair trade amplifies poverty. It makes the rich richer and leaves the poor behind.
