Welcome to the Global Business Dialogue,  GBD, a membership association for those who care about trade policy–companies, trade associations, embassies, law firms and others.    GBD’s principal tasks are to highlight important perspectives on international trade and investment,  to foster understanding of the rules and realities that govern global commerce today, and to bring to the fore the issues and decisions that will shape it in the years ahead.


The next event from the Global Business Dialogue will be announced early in 2018.

The WTO Dispute Settlement System

From The TTALK Quotes 

The WTO Appellate Body Is A Lightning Rod

“Why?  Well, for one thing, it owns a lot of the most adventuresome decisions faulting U.S. measures.  For another, it unapologetically claims to have gap filling authority.”

Note to Visitors

This is but the start of a reconstruction and enhancement of the Global Business Dialogue website, www.gbdinc.org.  In a sense, it is premature to put it on line now.  We are doing it because we want everyone who is interested to have access to the three things this page contains: i)  a statement of what GBD is, ii) information on the next GBD event, and iii) the start of the most recent TTALK Quote.
