WTO organizes “Geneva Weeks” for non-resident delegations

These special week-long events bring together representatives of WTO members who do not have permanent missions in Geneva and therefore cover WTO matters from other European capitals or from their capitals. The purpose is to inform these members and observers about recent developments taking place at the WTO.
