At the Thirteenth WTO Ministerial Conference, TESS is working to foster inclusive international cooperation on a trading system that works for sustainability.

Now is the time to engage!

As governments and stakeholders gather in Abu Dhabi from 26–29 February 2024 for the Thirteenth WTO Ministerial Conference, TESS is working to foster inclusive international cooperation on a trading system that works for sustainability.

At a time when addressing the triple environmental crises—climate change, nature loss, and pollution—is more urgent than ever, MC13 is a critical opportunity to bolster cooperation on trade, environment, and sustainable development. Strong ministerial-level engagement and commitment is needed to strengthen international cooperation at the WTO on sustainability and trade to consolidate the progress of the past few years and provide vital political impetus for further work.

We invite you to join us at the various activities we will be participating in and hosting in the margins of MC13 to foster inclusive international cooperation on a trading system that works for sustainability, including a stakeholder reception of the Coalition of Trade Ministers on Climate.

We also invite you to explore our new Synergies series of expert views on reviving multilateralism.

Join us at MC13!
