Tajikistan takes another step towards joining the WTO

WTOTajikistan came one step closer to joining the World Trade Organization (WTO) on Friday when the Working Party on its accession approved the package spelling out its terms of entry to the organization. The package contains reforms to Tajikistan’s trade  regime, market access schedules on goods and services, the Ministerial Decision and the Protocol of Accession.  The Working  Party will now send its accession recommendation to the General Council which is scheduled to meet December 11-12, 2012. It is expected that all the WTO members will approve these documents and accept Tajikistan as a WTO member.  Tajikistan originally applied for WTO membership in May 2001.  More information may be found on here.
