Events calendar 2008

This page lists WTO and non-WTO events related to the multilateral trading system. Links to non-WTO websites open in a new window and the WTO takes no responsibility for their content. The list is restricted to those events which are organized by intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) which have been granted observer status to the General Council of the WTO (see List).

WTO members occasionally organize meetings of selected countries at the ministerial level to discuss WTO matters. These are not official WTO events and are not listed on this page.
