World Trade Organization


Rationalization of the world trade system:

Stimulating a sustainable mechanism of production for fighting economic crises caused by

climate change

One of the main discussions that the member countries of the World Trade Organization hold at their meetings is the creation of trade policies for imports and exports that facilitate the traffic of goods and services under the same regulatory framework, in order to reduce the bureaucratic procedures that cost economies millions of dollars. The role of such policies would stimulate international trade, and the production of each country, granting the participation in the global market, always having in mind the importance of complying with strict environmental standards. In this committee delegates will face the archaic forms of production and trade that reward protectionism, speculation and relegation of emerging economies. Highlighting the role of e-commerce as an instrument of fair and sustainable trade between private companies and individuals, including the participation of  governments and regional regulators.

With international trade laws we will be creating a mechanism to face the economic crises caused by climate change. Therefore it is important to stimulate producers to use more environmentally and friendly mechanisms to enjoy commercial benefits.
