In the context of its assistance to countries in the process of acceding to the WTO, UNCTAD is co-organizing along with Iranian authorities a one day workshop on agriculture negotiations.
Each one of the pillars of the Agreement on agriculture will be reviewed, examining the impact of its provisions on the Iranian economy.
The current state of play of the Doha round negotiations on agriculture will also be examined, as well as the possible way forward.
Participants will include trade officials from the ministries dealing with agriculture-related issues.
This one day seminar on agriculture negotiations will be followed by consultations held with the Iranian authorities on the overall accession process.
