Samoa's accession to the WTO

The Council has adopted a decision approving, on behalf of the EU, Samoa's accession to the WTO. The decision will be taken by the WTO at its 8th ministerial conference, to be held in Geneva on 15-17 December.
It also discussed negotiations on government procurement agreement market access. The Council has reiterated its commitment to an ambitious and comprehensive outcome to the meeting. The Council also emphasised the crucial role of the WTO in the current economic and financial crisis and endorsed its efforts to provide an effective monitoring process to counter protectionism.
The council also adopted a decision approving the granting by the WTO ministerial conference of a waiver enabling WTO members to give preferential treatment to services and service suppliers of least-developed countries.
