The Forum provided a unique opportunity for representatives of governments, non-governmental organizations, parliamentarians, academics, members of the business community, trade unions, journalists, lawyers and students to assess the role of the multilateral trading system in addressing the consequences of the financial and economic crisis. The issues discussed included improving global governance as a way of addressing world problems; the role of the WTO and the Doha Round of negotiations in the current crisis; the impact of the crisis on developing countries; and the challenges lying ahead and the post-crisis agenda for the WTO.
