WTO Post-Accession Forum in Nairobi held for Liberia and Afghanistan

August 24th, 2016 by

The WTO and UNCTAD recently co-organised a Post-Accession Forum for Afghanistan and Liberia which took place in Nairobi, Kenya. The Forum reviewed how the two countries will benefit from WTO membership while granting representatives the opportunity to outline their hopes for their newly acquired membership in the WTO.

At the forum, the international community committed itself to continuing support to the countries in undertaking necessary domestic reforms and advancing the two countries in developing their international trade agenda. Also attending the Forum were other LDCS negotiating their WTO accession, current members and bilateral and multilateral development partners.

TAF has supported two least developed countries (LDCs) in their WTO accession negotiations: Afghanistan and Comoros. TAF supported the Afghan Ministry of Commerce and Industry which enabled them to navigate WTO and to prepare for their first WTO Ministerial Conference in Nairobi 2015. Following 12 years of negotiations, the WTO Ministerial Conference in December 2015 approved Afghanistan’s accession to the WTO. Afghanistan will become the 164th WTO member on 29 July 2016.

TAF has also supported Comoros in their WTO accession and enabled them to achieved a number of milestones in their ongoing WTO accession process. In July 2015, the Government of Comoros submitted its first market access offers to the WTO, which served as an important milestone in their accession to the WTO.
