ACCESSIONS

Belarus

The Working Party on the accession of Belarus was established on 27 October 1993 and held its first meeting in June 1997. The latest meeting of the Working Party was held in May 2005. Bilateral market access negotiations are ongoing. The Secretariat has prepared an updated Factual Summary on the basis of inputs submitted by Belarus, which was circulated in November 2012. Further to the request by Members, the Secretariat also circulated background country economic reports on Belarus by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. In March 2013, a set of follow-up questions by Members, and replies by Minsk, were circulated by the Secretariat.
