What exactly is the World Trade Organization and what is it not? How does the multilateral trading system work? What are the most current developments and challenges facing the WTO?
What will be hot topics at the upcoming 12th WTO Ministerial Conference? Which other international organizations based in Geneva are involved in trade policy? And how do non-governmental organizations assess developments in and around trade policy? These and other questions were discussed during four days of intense training for journalists from Africa and Asia reporting for local newspapers, television or radio programs on trade and economic issues.
