Challenges for the Multilateral Trading System: Perspectives from East Africa

The dialogue for civil society and media representatives aims at developing a better understanding of the WTO and its role in the international trading system.

Besides first-hand information on the outcome of the last Ministerial Conference and the current discussions at the WTO, the WTO's regular functions and responsibilities will be explained in further detail. In addition, subjects of specific interest to the region will be addressed.

The dialogue's goal is to serve as a platform for in-depth and critical discussion of West Africa's experiences with the multilateral trading regime and its consequences for the region's social and economic welfare. The dialogue is jointly organized by the WTO and the FES Geneva and FES Kenya offices.
