The Ministry of Economy and Commerce yesterday concluded a workshop on dispute settlement mechanism, which was organised in co-operation with World Trade Organisation (WTO).
This workshop falls in line with the ministry’s efforts to promote capacity building among legal professionals, economists, and official experts in international co-operation and agreements, enabling them to develop their skills in the fields of international negotiations, trade and dispute settlement within the framework of the WTO.
The workshop also equipped participants with the technical skills and qualifications to understand all aspects of the trade dispute settlement mechanism within the WTO so that they could contribute to providing specialised services to various private and public sector entities.
The four-day workshop will bring together a number of employees from several government agencies and institutions, as well as lawyers and representatives of law firms, to discuss a number of issues related to the dispute settlement mechanism at the WTO.
The workshop introduced participants to the concept of the dispute settlement mechanism, the parties involved in the process and the core procedures of the WTO’s dispute settlement mechanism.
Attendees also participated in a simulated dispute settlement within the framework of the WTO Dispute Settlement Body.
Counsellor at WTO Muslum Yilmaz spoke about the definition of the WTO dispute settlement mechanism, key concepts and stakeholders in implementing the mechanism, challenges of implementing the dispute settlement procedures of the organisation and the types of complaints that are adopted, such as violations.
He also discussed the basic procedures followed by the organisation to settle disputes and the horizontal issues relating to the settlement of disputes.
