Ministers’ statements published as MC12 kicks-off in Geneva

Pre-recorded and written statements delivered by trade ministers and heads of delegation have been posted on the WTO website following the Opening Session of the 12th Ministerial Conference, which is taking place from 12 to 15 June. WTO members and observers were asked to submit these statements ahead of MC12 rather than deliver them in person in plenary sessions, which has been the practice followed in previous ministerial conferences.

The pre-recorded and written statements are available here.
