Caribbean countries attending WTO conference in Kenya

Trade ministers from the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) conference are attending the 10th Ministerial Conference (MC10) of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Prior to the four day conference that begins later on Tuesday, the ACP ministers and officials held a strategic preparatory meeting where Barbados Foreign Affairs and Foreign trade Minister, Maxine McClean, highlighted a number of unresolved issues. McClean, who chaired the deliberations, said that among the unresolved issues that would need to be addressed within the coming days, include agriculture, flexibility issues, special and differential treatment in trade, and the continuation of the Doha Development Agenda. An ACP statement said that ACP Secretary General, the Guyanese born Dr. Patrick Gomes was also among those making presentation to the strategic meeting. It said that during the meeting, WTO members of the ACP Group reaffirmed their declaration on the WTO 10th Ministerial Conference, which was previously endorsed in October by trade ministers meeting in Brussels.
