Through the WTO Joint Initiative on Services Domestic Regulation, a group of more than 60 WTO members are developing disciplines to mitigate the unintended trade restrictive effects of measures relating to licensing and qualification requirements and procedures, as well as technical standards.
Negotiations are at an advanced stage and an outcome is anticipated for the WTO Ministerial Meeting in November 2021. Services industry associations from the Global Services Coalition, and the Asia Pacific Services Coalition will participate in an interactive business discussion with keynote speaker Jaime Coghi Arias, Coordinator of the WTO Joint Initiative on Services Domestic Regulation.
