Under the theme Inclusive Trade, the World Trade Organization Public Forum will be an opportunity to discuss how a wider range of individuals and businesses can participate in the trading system and how WTO rules can help to ensure everyone benefits from trade. At a time when the business environment is changing and world growth is slowing, it is important to ensure that trade is truly inclusive, allowing small enterprises, women and innovative businesses to take an active role in the global trading system.

On September 27, IFLA in collaboration with IDEA and Innovarte will hold a workshop on the topic Trade and Inclusive Access to Knowledge.
