WTO (Negotiations, Regular Work, Leadership)

12th WTO Ministerial Conference

From 12 to 17 June 2022, trade ministers from member countries of the World Trade Organization (WTO) gathered in Geneva, Switzerland, for the 12th ministerial conference of the global trade body. They were expected to make advances or decisions on a number of open battlefronts, such as trade reponses to COVID-19; disciplining fisheries subsidies; and updating the 25 year-old trade rulebook. Through its “THE TALK” reporting services bulletin, CUTS kept the trade community posted every day on the proceedings.
