Can the WTO reform and remain relevant?

"The WTO is a member-driven organization. Without strong leadership, frequent engagement and serious interest among members in addressing its challenges, the institution itself cannot deliver results."

Asia Society Policy Institute Vice President Wendy Cutler asks whether or not the World Trade Organization - WTO can reform and remain relevant.

ICYMI: Cutler was recently in conversation with Amb. Zhang Xiangchen, the ambassador and permanent representative to the World Trade Organization from China.

Watch the full conversation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uC7-4Y-5N0w

I hope everyone from the Asia Society of New York is staying safe inside and practicing their social distancing. As a way to keep myself busy, I just subscribed to this movie streaming platform called Film Festival Flix. I have found so many interesting films to keep me as well as my family entertained during quarantine. One movie I definitely want to watch tonight is this Korean film called Poetry. I just watched the trailer and the storyline seems incredible. I would definitely subscribe to Film Festival Flix to watch Poetry as well as searching through other amazing movies on the platform.
I was there with my family tonight around 7:30 or so and why was the museum closed? The website does not say anything about the early closure of tonight (Friday night). There were no posted signs, nor recorded messages when I called in front of the museum. It was so strange and we were very very disappointed.
Why does Asia Society New York feel it is not important enough to organize & resist the Indian state’s (ala Nuremberg laws) unconstitutional, outright discriminatory CAA & the anticipated dehumanizing NRC. Have you made any effort that I may have missed? I don’t see any commentary or any events on your page. Who are we scared of? What is basic state-sponsored violation of human rights not important to you?

Hey friends! I am a Chinese American artist with a focus in photography and performance. I will be having my very first solo show "掀起veil" at C'mon Everybody in Brooklyn, New York this month and the opening reception is this Friday at 7pm. "掀起veil“ is a documentation of the modern China from my perspective as a local and an outsider. It is about the things we were taught to conceal. It is about love, relationship, individuality, and censorship. All taken over a span of a year. All involve a red piece of fabric. Now, I am grateful and happy that I get a chance to share with all of you! I hope this event is a place that like-minded people can get together. If this topic interests you, please come by tomorrow. If you are interested about the series, you can read more on my site at www.yaoruilin.com/veil or on my insta @yaoruilinyao
