Please note that we have moved to a new registration system.

The WTO’s 12th Ministerial Conference will take place in Geneva from 12 to 15 June 2022 after it was postponed twice due the Covid-19 pandemic. The last Ministerial Conference was organised nearly five years ago from 10 to 13 December 2017 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Despite the complex geopolitical situation, the EU remains strongly committed to multilateralism and a rules-based international system and is working hard to ensure meaningful multilateral outcomes at the Ministerial Conference.
