The 11th WTO Ministerial Conference will take place in Buenos Aires between 10-13 December 2017. The multilateral trading system is facing unprecedented challenges and the need to re-energise and restore WTO centrality for trade negotiations has been recognized.

The European Union has been working hard to ensure important and meaningful outcomes at the upcoming Ministerial Conference and has played an active role in on-going work on a range of key issues in areas such as: e-commerce, agriculture, domestic regulation on services, fisheries subsidies, industrial subsidies, transparency and good regulatory practices for the benefit of small and medium sized enterprises. Other areas of particular interest are investment facilitation and development.

The purpose of this meeting is to exchange views on the progress in the run up to the Ministerial Conference and the possible outcomes.
