The WTO’s Ninth Ministerial Conference, held in Bali at the end of 2013, concluded with ministers approving the “Bali Package”, a series of decisions covering trade facilitation, agriculture and development. The Conference also saw ministers agree to Yemen joining the WTO. Earlier in the year, Laos and Tajikistan completed their accession processes, bringing the WTO’s total membership to 159. In September, Roberto Azevêdo began his term of office as the WTO’s sixth Director-General, succeeding Pascal Lamy.
