The public screening will be on the following day, Thursday 18 April and if necessary on Friday 19 April, subject to the parties’ final approval that the recording does not contain any confidential business information or highly sensitive business information.
Both screenings will start at 10 am, in Room CRII of the WTO headquarters in Geneva. Only members of the public who have reserved seats in advance will be admitted.
