A new page on the WTO website caught my attention. It was titled "Business, trade and the WTO". The rationale given for it was:
"Business, trade and the WTO have always been closely connected. The biggest beneficiary of transparent and predictable trade rules and obligations is the private sector. Without business, there would be no trade and no WTO. Business is an important interlocutor for both governments and the WTO. It is actively involved in the multilateral trading system and participates in public activities of the WTO."
Recognition of the importance of multiple stakeholders or the inability of governments to represent "all" stakeholder interests?
