Trade Policy and Bilateral Relations


Logo - World Trade OrganisationThe World Trade Organization (WTO) deals with the rules of trade between nations at a global or near-global level. It’s an organization for liberalizing trade.

The negotiations take place in the Trade Negotiations Committee and its subsidiaries, which are usually, either regular councils or committees meeting in “special sessions”, or specially-created negotiating groups. Other work under the work programme takes place in other WTO councils and committees.

At the Fourth WTO Ministerial Conference in Doha, Qatar, in November 2001 WTO member governments agreed to launch new negotiations on a range of subjects including Agriculture, Non Agricultural Market Access (NAMA) and Services. The Ministers also agreed to work on other issues, in particular the implementation of the present agreements by Developing Countries. The entire package is called the Doha Development Agenda (DDA).

At the 9th WTO Ministerial Conference (Bali, 2013) the members of the WTO adopted the “Bali Package”, which includes a series of decisions aiming –among others- at facilitating and boosting trade.
