Dialogues with WTO Delegates
Second Roundtable Dialogue: Mega-regionals and Plurilaterals
The second Rountable Dialogue with WTO Ambassadors occurred on 23 April, 2014 in Geneva, Switzerland. Discussion focused on mega-regionals and plurilaterals in the context of the post-Bali agenda.
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.
