Trade, debt and finance

In 2011, the Working Group on Trade, Debt and Finance contributed towards addressing some of the structural gaps in the trade finance markets. In particular, the G20 Summit in Seoul requested the WTO to ‘assess and monitor’ the effectiveness of programmes operated by multilateral development banks to facilitate the provision of trade finance to low-income countries. The work undertaken by the WTO in the area of trade finance has benefited from the positive interaction between WTO members and the Expert Group on Trade Finance convened by the Director-General.
