Contributions by individual members


Miscellaneous income is earned from rental fees and sales of WTO print and electronic publications. The WTO also manages a number of trust funds, which have been contributed by Members. These are used in support of special activities for technical cooperation and training meant to enable least-developed and developing countries to make better use of the WTO and draw greater benefit from the multilateral trading system. The WTO’s total budget for the year 2007 is as follows:
  • 2007 Budget for the WTO Secretariat: 176,865,250 CHF;
  • 2007 Budget for the Appellate Body and its Secretariat: 5,111,200 CHF;
  • Total WTO Budget for the year 2007: 181,976,450 CHF
