Our lobbying partner Orgalim is convinced of the benefits for Europe of rules-based free trade, including an effective framework at the multilateral level such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
Strengthening and reinforcing the WTO and the functioning of the multilateral trading system must, therefore, remain a core priority for European Union trade policy.
Orgalim proposes the following specific recommendations for the reform of the WTO:
- Fixing the dispute resolution system
- Tackling subsidies, forced technology transfers, state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and self-declaration as a developing country
- Supporting relevant trade negotiations at WTO level
- Enhancing the role of the WTO Secretariat
