Annual reports on accessions by the Director-General
Annual reports on accessions by the Director-General have been issued since 2009. These reports provide an overview of accession-related developments for the year under review, including a particular focus on accessions by least-developed countries. They also help to ensure transparency about the accession process. Since 2010, the reports have included a dedicated thematic/research section.
The Annual Reports on Accessions by the Director-General are prepared under the Secretariat's own responsibility and without prejudice to the positions of Members and to their rights and obligations under the WTO.
