WTO members agree revised accession framework for LDCs

After long talks, WTO Members reached consensus in the sub-committee on LDCs concerning the revision of the guidelines which set key principles when examining LDCs' accession requests. They concurred with new "benchmarks" to guide market access negotiations on goods and services and on enhanced principles regarding transparency in accession negotiations, technical assistance, special and differential treatment and transition periods.
According to the European Commission, the EU welcomes that the WTO membership delivered those results in a short timeframe. The WTO General Council will be invited to formally adopt the proposed decision at its meeting.
