This informal dialogue will provide developing WTO Member negotiators, international agencies and civil society actors with an opportunity to discuss the possibilities for support to implementation of an agreement on fisheries subsidies.  It’s objectives are two fold, it will help to identify what kinds of technical assistance developing Members might find most useful, given the possible implementation steps they might be required to undertake, and will help to connect developing Members with possible providers of support for implementation of the new agreement.
