Over the past decade, ICTSD and partners have successfully organised many similar symposia, including those at the WTO Ministerial Conferences in Cancun (2003), Hong Kong (2005), and Geneva (2009 and 2011). These symposia have proven to be valuable occasions for policymakers, trade negotiators and representatives of intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, academics, and the private sector to engage in substantive discussions on issues of trade and sustainable development.
