The relationship between CITES and the WTO offers a valuable example of how different global governance frameworks can work in concert to help deliver on the world's common aspiration for sustainable development.

A Joint Publication by the World Bank Group and the World Trade Organization 

The report examines the links between trade and economic growth, the key constraints the extreme poor face in benefiting from trade opportunities, and discusses policy responses and implications for the WTO and WBG. It argues that a sustained effort to deepen economic integration and further lower trade costs is essential for ending poverty, and that lowering trade barriers between countries is essential but must form part of a wider approach that recognizes the specific constraints facing the extreme poor. The report reminds us all that a lot more remains to be done by the WTO, WBG and other partners to ensure trade makes the greatest possible contribution to ending poverty.

Stay tuned to www.wto.org for images, video and audio from the book launch.

‪#‎WTO‬ Trade and Tariffs: Trade grows as tariffs decline

Did you know?

Over the past 20 years, global trade in
goods has nearly quadrupled, reaching
US$ 19 trillion in 2013 compared with
US$ 5 trillion in 1996. This represents
an annual growth rate of 7.6 per cent on
average. Over the same period, there
has been a 15 per cent reduction in
average tariffs applied by WTO members.

WTO 20th Anniversary Event

Monday, 1 June 2015
WTO Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland 
Centre William Rappard, Room W

On 1 June 2015, the WTO launches a new book entitled “A History of Law and Lawyers in the GATT/WTO”, co-published with Cambridge University Press.

This book paints an interesting and sometimes surprising portrait of the evolution of the role that law and lawyers have played throughout the history of the multilateral trading system. It brings together original contributions from an unprecedented number of eminent current and former GATT and WTO staff members, including many current and former Appellate Body members, to trace the history of law and lawyers in the GATT/WTO and explore how the nature of legal work has evolved over the institution’s sixty-year history.

The book will be offered at a special 25% discount following the event.

Registration is mandatory for those who do not have WTO accreditation. Should you wish to register, please send an email to legalaffairs@wto.org by 28 May. Registered participants will need to leave their passport or ID card at the registration offi ce before entering the building.

Launch event co-sponsored by Cambridge University Press (@CUP_Law) and the World Trade Organization.

‪#‎WTO‬ Dispute Settlement: Resolving trade disputes
between WTO members

Did you know?
Over the past 20 years, nearly 500 disputes
have been brought to the WTO. About half
of these were resolved during bilateral
discussions while the other half proceeded
to a panel process, which in recent years
generally takes about 14 months. Appeals
are considered by the WTO’s Appellate Body
and – excluding exceptionally busy periods
– are completed within three months. This
makes the WTO’s dispute system one of the
fastest in the world.

Stay tuned for forthcoming brochures in the ‪#‎WTOat20‬ publication series. https://www.wto.org/english/thewto_e/20y_e/20y_e.htm
