Mexico 2010: interparliamentary discussions within the framework of the WTO

The Inter-Parliamentary Forum of the Americas (FIPA) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) held a joint workshop for parliamentarians on May 20-22 in Mexico City, in which I participated. The event, entitled “The Doha Development Round: Challenges and Opportunities for the Region”, was attended by parliamentarians of 16 countries of the Americas.  It sought to promote greater knowledge of the multilateral trade system, of WTO functioning and of the status of negotiations of the Doha Development Round in areas such as agriculture, trade in services and non-agricultural market access. The workshop also provided an opportunity to discuss the role of Parliaments in trade policy.
