Paragraphs Related to the Theme Paragraphs VII Summit
Date:  6/21/2011 

Barbados has always been committed to an open, transparent and rules-based multilateral trading system. To this end, Barbados has been a member of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) since that organisation was established on January 1,1995.

Barbados has joined like-minded countries in the WTO in an effort to ensure that our concerns are taken on board and appropriate responses framed to those concerns.

In the regard, Barbados is the coordinator of the group of Small Vulnerable Economies, whose efforts are geared towards ensuring that the inherent characteristics of the smallest members of the WTO are recognised and that these states are not marginalised by the results of the ongoing Doha Round of negotiations.

The work of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade is structured in order to ensure that the appropriate infrastructure is implemented and capacity is built which will permit Barbados to derive benefit from participation in the multilateral trading system and expanded trade.
