The WTO’s Tenth Ministerial Conference, held in Nairobi from 15 to 19 December 2015, adopted a range of decisions on agriculture, cotton and issues related to least-developed countries. The decisions include a commitment to abolish export subsidies for farm exports, which Director-General Roberto Azevêdo hailed as the “most significant outcome on agriculture” in the organization’s 20-year history. In their Nairobi Declaration, ministers acknowledged that WTO members “have different views” on how to address the future of the Doha Round negotiations. The Conference also approved the accessions of Liberia and Afghanistan. A landmark information technology deal was concluded.
