UAE Representative Office
To World Trade Organization
The UAE Representative Office to the WTO in Geneva is at the heart of the world’s strongest network of international, political, industrial, trade, research and media organisations. It focusses on economic diplomacy of the state, in liaison with European institutions and governments, strengthening ties with EU institutions, International Telecommunication Union, and member countries of the World Trade Organization. The office also monitors the implementation of the commitments of the UAE as well as other countries, especially those of interest to the state's trade.
The UAE office at the World Trade Organization also collects useful trade-related data and information, facilitating bilateral communication and meetings, making suggestions, and actively participating in the negotiation processes of the WTO. It also provides analysis of information, identifies contacts, assists UAE companies, organisations and government agencies, and contributes to awareness programmes about the importance of the World Trade Organization. It supports customs processes in the UAE, and works towards promoting the economy, defending the interests of the national business communities.
The office works in cooperation with other organisations based in Geneva, such as the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and International Trade Centre (ITC).
