Lamy’s farewell speech to the General Council

Director-General Pascal Lamy, in his farewell statement to the General Council on 24 July 2013, said: “It has been an immense honour and privilege to serve this organization. I think it is fair to say that, together, we have strengthened the WTO as the global trade body, as a major pillar of global economic governance. Despite the heavy headwinds and the turmoil in the global economy as well as on the geo-political scene, together we have made this organization larger and stronger.”
