Information

The 10th WTO Ministerial Conference took place in December 2015 in Nairobi. The ministerial conference was a moderate success, since several resolutions were passed and a direct confrontation was avoided. However, it also emerged that it is becoming increasingly difficult to agree on global rules. The biggest challenge for the WTO lies in the bilateralisation of trade policy.
