GENEVA - SWITZERLAND (HQ of WTO)
STOP the WTO corporate agenda before Hong Kong !
With December’s Ministerial Meeting in Hong Kong in view, WTO members are speeding up negotiations to ensure a successful outcome. The collapse of the trade talks in Cancun still in mind, the WTO changed their negotiating strategy.
