2020 WTO Public Forum cancelled

The WTO has decided to cancel this year’s WTO Public Forum, scheduled for 29 September to 2 October. This decision responds to the complexities around planning to host thousands of people from around the world for a public event under the WTO roof, as well as the practical difficulties associated with planning international travel in September.

The WTO Secretariat is exploring the possibility of organizing a smaller-scale event before the end of year. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to people and organizations that had been preparing for the Public Forum.​​
