Iraq Seeks Permanent Membership of WTO
Posted on 01 February 2011
The director of economic relations in the Federal Trade ministry said on Monday that his ministry backed the World Trade Organization (WTO)’s decision to enter into a third round of negotiations over granting Iraq permanent membership.
Iraq passed two important rounds in 2007 and 2008 in which it reviewed its efforts in developing its commercial situation and will begin the third round this year,
The federal Trade Ministry said earlier that the WTO is suitably “convinced” by the legislation approved by the Iraqi parliament to support the country’s trade policy.
