Angola: Nation At 10th WTO Parliamentarian Session

Geneva — Angola is attending from Thursday the annual session of parliamentarians on the World Trade Organization (WTO), with the theme "Back to basics, reconnecting to politics and trade," taking place in Geneva, Switzerland.

The meeting is jointly organized by the Inter-parliamentary Union and the European Parliament.

The Angolan delegation at the event is led by the permanent representative of Angola to the UN Offices in Geneva, the Ambassador Apolinario Correia.

The meeting, which is set to end on Friday, will discuss the challenges of international trade in the twenty-first century and the contribution of trade for economic growth, job creation and poverty reduction.

During the meeting Angola will reiterate, among others, its engagement in multilateralism and attachment to the multilateral universal and open trading system, non-discriminatory and fair, based on transparent rules that contribute to economic growth, in sustainable development and job creation.

Angola will also back the promotion of States to implement national policies on trade, industry, employment and integrated and coherent social security that favour the creation of productive jobs.

Strengthening of means of production and resistance to the external shocks, the inter-parliamentary cooperation in economic and trade matters, will also deserve attention by Angola at the event.
