IN PERSON EVENT
Venue: WTO Room S3
In the collective fight against climate change and other environmental concerns, more and more WTO members are developing their own strategies, some more ambitious than others, some going faster than others. Trade is at the core of many of these policies and the WTO can play a fundamental role in advancing and coordinating international environmental goals. Join our session where high level representatives from governments, business and NGOs will take a particular look at the international dimension of the European Green Deal, ways to enhance cooperation with partners, facilitate implementation and address potential concerns, especially those raised by developing countries. Our invited experts will also explore the way forward in the multilateral discussions ahead of the 13th WTO Ministerial Conference.
