Sharjah 24 – WAM: Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, Minister of State for Foreign Trade, has led a UAE delegation to the World Trade Organisation’s Public Forum in Geneva, Switzerland, which is being held under the theme “It’s Time for Action”. This year’s forum is exploring how the WTO, and the wider trading community, can help create a greener and more sustainable future through inclusive trade policies powered by advanced technology.
During the Forum, Dr. Al Zeyoudi was able to meet permanent representatives to the WTO from a number of member nations, during which he shared updates on the preparations for MC13 and sought to align on key policy objectives, including measures to enhance the inclusivity and efficiency of supply chains.
He then attended the launch of The World Trade Report 2023, the WTO’s flagship publication that presents a comprehensive, data-driven analysis of the issues impacting trade. This year’s report has a focus on “re-globalisation” and its role in delivering a resilient, inclusive and sustainable future – which aligns with the UAE’s advocacy for open, rules-based trade as a driver of economic development.
