Business, trade and the WTO
Business, trade and the WTO have always been closely connected. The biggest beneficiary of transparent and predictable trade rules and obligations is the private sector. Without business, there would be no trade and no WTO. Business is an important interlocutor for both governments and the WTO. It is actively involved in the multilateral trading system and participates in public activities of the WTO.
In a recent WTO survey of the business community, over 80 per cent of businesses welcomed the idea of having a dedicated webpage with information tailored to their interests and needs. This is why this web page has been created. We hope that you find it useful.
