Events calendar 2009

This page lists WTO and non-WTO events related to the multilateral trading system. Links to non-WTO websites open in a new window and the WTO takes no responsibility for their content. The list is not intended to be comprehensive and is restricted to those events which are organized by intergovernmental organizations (IGOs). We invite IGOs to alert us to events that they would like to see highlighted on this page.

WTO members occasionally organize meetings of selected countries at the ministerial level to discuss WTO matters. These are not official WTO events and are not listed on this page.
