What Comes Next for Trade and Sustainability at the WTO Ministerial Conference?
The International Institute for Sustainable Development welcomes the news that the World Trade Organization’s 12th Ministerial Conference (MC12) will now take place the week of June 13, 2022, in Geneva, Switzerland.
Last December, we hosted our inaugural Trade and Sustainability Hub conference to discuss some of the key policy issues on the agenda for MC12. Over 50 partners came together to deliver more than 30 thought-provoking sessions on a range of policy solutions oriented toward advancing a more sustainable trade regime.
We look forward to building on the success of last year’s event and reconvening this June for a high-level event to continue the conversation and reflect on what comes next. More details on the timing and format of these dialogues will be shared in the coming weeks.
