World Trade Organization Event: Who Notices Notifications?


WebEx on March 30

The U.S. delegation of the World Trade Organization (WTO), together with the delegations of Israel and New Zealand, in conjunction with the WTO Friends of Transparency, will host an event to highlight expert insights on notifications related to laws and regulations affecting trade. ANSI encourages relevant stakeholders to participate.

“Who Notices Notifications? A Conversation with the Private Sector at the WTO” will be held on March 30, 2023, from 8:30-10:00 a.m. ET. Join remotely (no registration required) via WebEx. In-person attendance is also available in WTO Room D in Geneva, Switzerland.

Each member of the WTO must notify other members of their laws and regulations affecting trade. Members submit notification to the WTO, and these notifications are publicly available documents. Notifications provide predictability for traders, helping them make informed decisions. They also help businesses make plans, mitigate risks, and follow through on their commitments to customers and suppliers.

Clare Kelly, New Zealand Ambassador to the WTO, will moderate the discussions. María Pagán, United States Ambassador to the WTO, will provide introductory remarks. Speakers will include:

  • Nir Deutsch, Manufacturers Association of Israel
  • Yael Freidgut, Technical Barriers to Trade Enquiry Point of Israel
  • Rosalind Leeck, U.S. Soybean Export Council
  • James McVitty, Fonterra
  • Valerie Picard, International Chamber of Commerce
  • Tieu-Long Thai Truong, Loc Kim Chi Seafood Joint Stock Company
