WTO: Cameroon wins the organization of the 13th Ministerial Conference scheduled for 2024
According to the Ministry of Commerce (Micommerce), Cameroon will host the 13th Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organization to be held in 2024. It is during this grand mass that WTO members discuss orientations and reforms on world trade.
According to this administration, this "great victory" is to the credit of Cameroonian diplomacy, led "in an enlightened way" by the Head of State Paul Biya, and "the skill and tact" of the Minister of Trade, Luc Magloire Mbarga Atangana. In Geneva, Cameroon pleaded for an aggiornamento of the rules of world trade currently unfavorable to Africa.
The country said it was available to discuss issues related to food insecurity, which threatens a significant portion of the world's population; the deregulation of supply chains, which prevents the poorest countries from benefiting from international trade; the contribution of trade to curbing the coronavirus pandemic, particularly through the facilitation of production and access to the vaccine; and the imbalance of global rules in the agricultural sector.
According to Mincommerce, this conference is a world-class event that will host more than 5,000 delegates and actors of international trade from 164 member countries
