SAIIA event on sidelines of WTO Ministerial Conference

  • Location: Bali

On 4 December 2013, SAIIA will host a session on the sidelines of the 9th World Trade Organization (WTO) Ministerial Conference, on the topic "BRICS and the Multilateral Trading System." This session is part of the Bali Trade and Development Symposium, which will take place from 3-5 December.

Over the past decade, the Symposium has earned a reputation as the premier parallel event at WTO Ministerial Conferences. These symposia offer a valuable space for a wide range of stakeholders – from policymakers to business leaders to non-governmental organisations – to engage in substantive open discussion outside the negotiating context in order to help move the sustainable development policy agenda forward.
