ACP: Development issues to be considered during the next WTO negotiations

Trade Ministers of the ACP Group of States emphasized during meeting in Brussels 9-11 October the importance of securing a balanced and meaningful outcome in the areas under negotiation at the Ninth Ministerial Conference of the WTO to be held in Bali, Indonesia 3-6 December 2013.
They considered the status of work regarding the negotiations preparation and they said they are expecting a successful outcome in Bali and a clear commitment to a post-Bali work programme that places development at its core.
The Ministers urged all members to show the required flexibilities to achieve consensus in the areas of Development, Least Developed Country issues, Agriculture, and Trade Facilitation and ensure a balanced outcome within and between these pillars. Finally, they welcomed the intensification of work led by the Chairman of the WTO Trade Negotiations Committee and stressed the importance of ensuring that these negotiations respect the principles of fairness, inclusiveness and transparency.
