Building Trust and Convergence: Informal Lunch Meeting of WTO Negotiators

The year 2015 is critical as WTO members work towards a Post-Bali Work Programme to conclude the Doha round. Both developing and developed countries will now have to confront the core issues that have divided them for nearly 15 years and build the necessary trust to find creative solutions. This event organised by CUTS and FES Geneva Office sought to positively contribute towards convergence on a balanced Post-Bali Work Programme, by informally bringing together WTO negotiators from both developing and developed countries towards building greater trust with each other.
