23 июня 2021, 20:48182

Zhanar Aitzhanova, Permanent Representative of Kazakhstan to the WTO, addressed the WTO General Council and highlighted priority issues for the upcoming 12th WTO Ministerial Conference, Delovoy Kazakhstan reports.

Permanent Representative of the Republic of Kazakhstan Zh.Aitzhanova confirmed Kazakhstan's support for two Joint Statements and initiatives of WTO Members such as response to the COVID-19 pandemic ("Trade and Health") and lifting export restrictions on foodstuffs purchased for non-commercial humanitarian purposes by the UN World Food Programme.

Ensuring the WTO's response to the COVID-19 pandemic is a priority issue at the upcoming MC12. In this regard, Kazakhstan attaches great importance to further discussions of relevant deliverables at MC12.

These WTO initiatives aim to remove unnecessary trade barriers for trade in medical goods necessary to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and facilitate the supply of critical humanitarian products provided by the UN to countries in need that are most affected by the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Currently, the initiative on response to the COVID-19 pandemic is supported by 25 WTO Members, and 54 WTO Members have joined the statement on the lifting of export restrictions on products purchased by the UN World Food Programme. At the same time, the number of countries supporting these initiatives is steadily growing.
