Seminar on International Trade Law and Policy

4-6 August 2014
 
 
 
 
 
 
Today, the potential of international trade and the multilateral trading system to contribute to economic growth, development and employment is widely recognized. State members of the World Trade Organization (WTO) committed to a development agenda at its 4th Ministerial Conference held in Doha in November 2001, but the agenda remains yet to be concluded.  At the conference, trade ministers adopted the “Doha Work Programme” and launched a new round of trade negotiations, placing the interests of developing countries at the heart of these negotiations with a view to facilitating their greater participation in the multilateral trading system.
 
This seminar will take place from 4-6 August in Conference Room D (CB) from 10.00 to 17.00 on All days.
