This brief calls for multilateral institutions to enhance their support for unilateral trade liberalization through bilateral negotiations and multilateral approval, with some emphasis on market opening for trade in goods.

The brief provides suggestions on “hybrid multilateralism” and proposes that international financial institutions reactivate the use of trade-related conditionalities in their policy-based lending.
