General Council approves Seychelles’ WTO membership, only ratification left

Yesterday, WTO members adopted Seychelles’ WTO terms of entry at the General Council meeting. Seychelles will have until 1 June 2015 to ratify the deal to formally become a WTO member 30 days after it notifies the ratification to the WTO Director-General.

The deal — the Protocol on the Accession of the Republic of Seychelles — was officially signed on the margins of the General Council by WTO Director-General Roberto Azevêdo and Seychelles’ Minister of Finance, Trade and Investment, Pierre Laporte, and is subject to domestic ratification by Seychelles’ Parliament.
