Cuban delegation to the 10th Ministerial Conference of the WTO begins the work program.
Geneva, 15 December 2015. The Cuban delegation, headed by Deputy Minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment, Ileana Nuñez Mordoche, is already in Nairobi, Kenya, to participate in the Tenth Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organization (WTO) that is being held in this city from 15 to 18 December.
The Cuban delegation dedicated its first workdays to participate in the ministerial meetings of alliances and groups to which Cuba belongs within this forum, which takes place in a complex scenario for developing countries.
In these initial meetings, the Cuban Deputy Minister of Foreign Trade stressed the need to reaffirm the continuity of the Doha Development Agenda (DDA) to achieve its full conclusion, and the importance of preserving the Special and Differential Treatment for developing countries as the guiding principle of the Organization.
Nuñez Mordoche also emphasized that "the introduction of new issues on the agenda of the WTO, without completing the DDA will not favor the credibility of the multilateral trading system, or contribute to resolve the major imbalances in international trade".
The official opening session of the Conference was held in the afternoon of December 15, which was attended by Honorable Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta, the President of Kenya.
Complex workdays that will determine the future work of this organization are expected to take place until December 18.
