Signataires récents de l'AMP: premières expériences et évaluations


The plurilateral WTO Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) is celebrating a dual anniversary this year: 40 years since the first-ever GPA entered into force in 1981 during the GATT days, and 25 years since the first WTO GPA entered into force in 1996.

Against this background, in this panel discussion government experts from New Zealand, Chinese Taipei and Ukraine discuss their experiences since their governments joined the GPA not long ago.  What is their assessment of the benefits and impact of GPA accession? Have things turned out as expected or did reality surpass or fall short of expectations? What can WTO members considering GPA accession learn from their experience?



  • Astghik Solomonyan, Technical Assistance Officer, Intellectual Property, Government Procurement and Competition Division (IPD), World Trade Organization (WTO)


  • Karen English, Director, International Procurement and Trade, New Zealand Government Procurement, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment
  • Oksana Kamianetska, Head of International Activities at the Public Procurement Department of the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine
  • Hsiang-Yu Chen, Section Chief, Public Construction Commission, Chinese Taipei

The event will not be live streamed but will be made available on the WTO's YouTube channel (World Trade Organization — YouTube). It is expected to be made available on the WTO's YouTube channel on Friday, 30 July 2021.

Suggested questions to the panel may be submitted in advance, by email to [email protected] (using the subject line: July public event). Any questions would need to be submitted by no later than Wednesday, 28 July 2021, at 3 p.m. CEST.
