The seminar is being organised by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and CUTS International, Geneva, and will take place on Wednesday 29th January, 2020.
The event will focus on the Joint Statement Initiative on Electronic Commerce. It will present the history and developments in the exploratory talks and subsequent negotiations on e-commerce among a group of WTO members, a process that was launched at the organisation’s 11th Ministerial Conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2017.
The seminar will involve presentations and discussions about the history and developments in e-commerce discussions, along with an update on the current state of play. Bringing together Geneva-based delegates from developing and least developed countries, it will also look at issues of particular interest to those countries, along with helping to identify development-related issues that will be analysed in a subsequent paper.
