BLOOM’s agenda

December

WTO’s Ministerial Conference – Buenos Aires

10-13 December, 2017

WTO members have agreed that the organization’s Eleventh Ministerial Conference (MC11) will take place from 10 to 13 December 2017 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The Conference will be chaired by Argentina’s Foreign Minister Susana Malcorra.

BLOOM will alert governments and ocean advocates on the fact that the December 2017 WTO meeting in Buenos Aires is the only opportunity for the international community to have a timely implementation of SDG 14.6 (elimination of harmful subsidies by 2020), as there will be no other  WTO meeting before the end of 2019.
