The 10th WTO Ministerial Conference (MC10) took place in Nairobi, Kenya, from 15 to 18 December 2015. It marked the 20th anniversary of the organisation and was the first to be held in Africa.

MC10 delivered a landmark deal that is good for fairer global trade and good for development with the "Nairobi package", which builds on the agreement reached in Bali two years ago. The Ministerial also saw the finalisation of the review of the 1996 Information Technology Agreement.

The purpose of this meeting is to debrief and exchange views with civil society on the results of MC10 and the work ahead.

 Moderator

Ms Montserrat Gago, Co-ordinator relations with civil society, Information, Communication and Civil Society Unit, Directorate-General for Trade
