приветствовать, Russia!

(“Welcome, Russia!”)

Russia today acceded to the WTO at the 8th WTO Ministerial Conference (MC8), currently underway in Geneva. In fact, as of now, the ceremony is being webcast live here (it will also be available in the video archives of the Conference). With Russia’s accession, the WTO disciplines now cover 97 percent of world trade! The documents relating to Russia’s accession, including the Working Party Report, are available here.

A very warm welcome to Russia, and congratulations to the WTO!
