  1. Alicia, I didn’t look at this blog before. But now I look at it, I find it very interesting indeed. Trade law has a great future, particularly at present with so much resistance around the world (Brexit is also a new type of headache) and this blog hopefully meet its standards with your expertise and active participation.
