Recall that Trade ministers on February 26, 2024, issued conflicting messages on what needs to be accomplished at the World Trade Organization’s 13th ministerial conference (MC13) in Abu Dhabi, with the United States having underscored the need to ensure that the benefits of trade reached more people, while many developing countries highlighted the unresolved issues revolving around food security.

Ahead of the meeting, members submitted their respective statements, which were released on the first day of MC13.

The priorities articulated by trade ministers from key industrialized countries as well as developing countries differed sharply in terms of their priorities for MC13.
