Theme of 2016 Public Forum to be “Inclusive Trade”

The theme of the 2016 Public Forum, to be held at the WTO’s headquarters in Geneva on 27-29 September, is “Inclusive Trade”.

The Forum will be an opportunity for participants to discuss how a wider range of individuals and businesses can participate in the trading system and how WTO rules can help to ensure everyone benefits from trade. At a time when the business environment is changing and world growth is slowing, it is important to ensure that trade is truly inclusive, allowing small enterprises, women and innovative businesses to take an active role in the global trading system.

This year’s Forum will examine in particular how the WTO can foster the participation of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the global market, how the trading system can support innovation and how women can participate more fully in international trade.

The Forum will also see the launch of the WTO’s flagship publication, the World Trade Report, which will focus on SMEs. A number of other books will also be launched during this year’s Forum.

Stands organized by both internal and external partners will display information concretely showcasing how to make trade more inclusive.

Public Forum: 15 years of promoting openness

This year’s event is particularly noteworthy as we are marking the 15th anniversary of the Public Forum. Several side events and exhibitions will highlight how civil society organizations have influenced the WTO’s agenda over the last 15 years.


The annual Public Forum is the WTO’s flagship event. It provides a unique platform for heads of state and leading global businesspeople, academics and non-governmental organizations to come together and discuss some of the major trade and development issues of the day. Over 1,500 participants attend the Forum each year.
