Ruggiero's speeches, 1995-99
The WTO is now at your fingertips, said WTO
Director-General Mike Moore. With over 100,000
official documents in English, French and Spanish, the
new on-line database is part of the ongoing efforts to
make the Organization more accessible and to make its
work more transparent for a worldwide public. Anyone
interested in international trade will find the new
database an invaluable tool in their search for a deeper
understanding of the WTO.
WTO website attracts an average of 250,000 users per
month from over 160 countries. These users download
thousands of documents and data from the site. The new
on-line database has been designed specifically to
further enhance user-friendliness, offering faster and
more efficient tools to search for, and download, WTO
documents, including Member Governments proposals
and official records of meetings.
documents will be added to the database on a daily basis,
continually supplementing the wide range of explanatory
material available on the WTO website as a whole.
