Information about the organization


A guide to “WTO speak”. When you click on a term, an explanation will appear.

This glossary is designed to help understanding of some of the terms used in the WTO and in international trade. While every effort has been made to ensure that they are accurate, the definitions in this dictionary do not constitute authoritative interpretations of the legal texts of the WTO and are presented for illustrative purposes only. Nor is the glossary comprehensive.

More terms are available in the WTO Terminology Database (WTOTERM).
