Trade: Orgalim Position Paper on the World Trade Organisation (WTO)
Published: 6 April 2021
Policies & Issues: Trade
Orgalim is convinced of the benefits for Europe of rules-based free trade, including an effective framework at the multilateral level such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO). Strengthening and reinforcing the WTO and the functioning of the multilateral trading system must, therefore, remain a core priority for European Union trade policy.
We have the following specific recommendations for the reform of the WTO:
Fixing the dispute resolution system
Tackling subsidies, forced technology transfers, state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and self-declaration as a developing country
Supporting relevant trade negotiations at WTO level
Enhancing the role of the WTO Secretariat
