Seventh China Round Table - Eurasian Perspectives on the future of the Multilateral Trading System: Accessions and the Evolution of WTO Rules - Septième Table ronde de la Chine - Perspectives eurasiennes sur l'avenir du système commercial multilatéral: les accessions et l'évolution des règles de l'OMC - Séptima mesa redonda de China - Perspectivas euroasiáticas sobre el futuro del sistema multilateral de comercio: adhesiones y evolución de las normas de la OMC

The principal objective of this Round Table is to provide a regional insight on the future of multilateral trading system. Historically, Eurasian countries have developed unique and complex geopolitical, economic and trade relations with their counterparts around the globe. At the heart of Eurasia, the Astana China Round Table will therefore provide a context to discuss the way forward for deeper integration of the Eurasian region into the global market economy, including its contributions and systemic importance for the global trade. Special focus will be drawn on the role the Eurasian Economic Union is playing in shaping the regional economy and its relations with the multilateral trading system. In addition, the CRT-07 will reflect on the best accession-related experiences and elaborate on the developing trends in Eurasian accessions. It will allow benefiting from the first-hand experience of the chief negotiators, chairpersons and the WTO Secretariat as well as acceding governments. Another pillar of the Round table is focused on the evolution of the WTO rules and the role of WTO Accessions, which have proved to be the vehicle for WTO rule-making, often a step ahead of multilateral trade negotiations. On the third day of the China Round Table, participants will attend the High-Level Forum on Facilitating Trade and Investment for Development, hosted by Kazakhstan in partnership with the WTO
