ModeratorPedro Negueloatecheverry, Secretary of Embassy, Mission of Argentina.
This session aims to discuss challenges facing the WTO Dispute Settlement System from Latin American (LA) Members' perspectives. In particular, we will analyse how LA Members have used this System, and also explore today's substantive issues of particular interest for Latin American Members.
For example, we may discuss whether there are differences in approaches to the use of outside counsels in proceedings among LA Members and between LA Members and other Members as a matter of practical work on disputes. We may also address regional characteristics, such as the use of Spanish language in the Dispute Settlement proceedings.
Through our presentations, we wish to shed light on how LA Members can contribute to the proper functioning of the WTO Dispute Settlement System.
