This year’s edition of Trade Week will take a deep dive into various issues at the nexus of trade and sustainability. It will also focus on the latest developments, key issues, and road ahead for the joint initiatives underway among groups of WTO members. Moreover, it includes trade and environment, electronic commerce, and investment facilitation.

The events bring together representatives of WTO members who do not have permanent missions here and cover WTO matters from other European capitals or from their capitals. Furthermore, the purpose is to inform the WTO members and observers about recent developments taking place at the WTO.

This Trade Week offers plenty of opportunities to meet, catch up and plan the collaborations of the future.
