FTA leads a successful panel at WTO Public Forum

30-10-2012

FTA and EuroCommerce jointly organised a panel at the WTO Public Forum 2012 in Geneva on 25 September 2012. The high-level panel discussion gathered more than 130 people to discuss the issue 'Liberalisation, predictability, trade facilitation 2012: What can the WTO still deliver to economic operators?'. The session was animated by highly interesting presentations and an interactive and constructive debate between the panelists and the audience.

The panel succeeded in demonstrating business support to the WTO, in pushing for quicker progress on Trade Facilitation and in sensibilising policy makers and the business community for the importance and opportunities of a strong multilateral framework under the WTO. During the session a positively received statement co-signed by five European and North American retail associations was published.
