The E15 engages key stakeholders – trade and investment policy makers, business and thought leaders – in policy dialogues in Geneva and around the world to explore and help validate ideas, align interests and strengthen the impetus for change.
Dialogues with WTO Delegates
Fifth Roundtable Dialogue: The Post-Bali Work Programme
The fifth Rountable Dialogue with WTO Ambassadors occurred on 6 November, 2014 in Geneva, Switzerland. Discussion focused on the future for the Bali Decisions and the Post-Bali Work Programme.
If new ideas are going to be advanced at the multilateral level, the representatives to the WTO in Geneva will be critical. As such, engaging this group is important in disseminating ideas, testing their viability, and generating ownership. ICTSD, in a collaboration with Geneva’s top-ranked Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, and led by Prof. Richard Baldwin, Director of the Centre for Trade and Economic Integration and President of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), is hosting a series of dialogues and substantive roundtables in Geneva to engage Permanent Representatives and delegates to the WTO.
