Challenges for the Multilateral Trading System: Perspectives from West Africa

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

Besides first-hand information on the ongoing preparations for the upcoming 11th WTO Ministerial Conference in December this year in Buenos Aires, the WTO's regular functions and responsibilities were explained in further detail. In addition, subjects of specific interest to the region were addressed. The dialogue's goal was 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 was jointly organized by the WTO and the FES Geneva office.
