World Trade Organization

The Doha Round of World Trade Organization (WTO) trade negotiations have been underway since November 2001. The Doha Ministerial Declaration mandates negotiations on a wide range of issues and has a strong focus on development.

The WTO Ministerial Conference is the topmost decision-making body of the WTO. Ministerial Conferences have been held in SingaporeGenevaSeattleDohaCancún and Hong Kong. The most recent was the Ninth Ministerial Conference (MC9) held in Bali in December 2013.

Trade ministers also meet in other settings, either as a full ministerial meeting of all members or as a subset of the membership. Trade ministers also meet often in the margins of international trade-related meetings.
