FES-WTO Regional Dialogue: Southern Africa and Multilateral Trade

The dialogue for journalists and NGOs aimed at developing a better understanding of the WTO and the general international trading system.

Besides first-hand information on the ongoing preparations for the upcoming 10th WTO Ministerial Conference, the WTO's regular functions and responsibilities were explained in further detail. The dialogue's goal was to serve as a platform for in-depth and critical discussion of Southern Africa's experiences with the multilateral trade regime and its consequences for the region's social and economic welfare. The implications of bilateral and plurilateral trade agreements were also addressed.
