The 11th Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in Buenos Aires ended without any negotiated outcome. At the same time, the organisation is under pressure due to escalating tensions between major trading partners. Is the WTO in crisis? What is the way forward? INTA discussed this with WTO Deputy-Director General Frederic Agah and invited experts from China, the United States, India and the Geneva-based International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development.
