World Trade Organization


On 22 August 2012, the Russian Federation formally joined the World Trade Organization (WTO), although the Russian WTO rules adaptation programme was not fully implemented. Russia’s WTO membership drives the need for the efficient business advocacy mechanisms and vulnerable sectors protection policy. The business community should engage with the Russian Government on the vital issues of the WTO key agreements implementation affecting various sectors of the economy.

Close cooperation with the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia is needed to ensure Russia`s priorities are well presented at the WTO committees meetings.
