The Global Trade and Innovation Policy Alliance (GTIPA) represents a global network of 24 world-class, independent, like-minded think tanks from throughout the world which share a common vision that trade, globalization, and innovation—supported by governments on market-based terms—can produce tremendous benefits for the world’s citizens.

Each year, GTIPA members come together for an Annual Summit whose objective is to facilitate serious discussion in the exploration of creative solutions to the difficult economic, trade, and innovation challenges faced by the international community. In addition to GTIPA think tank members, the Summit attracts world-leading subject matter experts on trade and innovation policy issues such as leaders from business, government, academic, and policymaking communities across Europe and the world.
