Signalling conference on services

On 26 July 2008, in the middle of the WTO Miniqsterial Meeting, at the request of WTO members, the Chair of the TNC (Trade Negotiating Committee, chaired by WTO Director General Pascal Lamy) convened a Services Signalling Conference for interested ministers to indicate how their governments’ current services offers might be improved in response to requests that had been received. The signals, as reported by the Chair of the TNC, were noted by participants as being better than expected.
