NOTE BY THE SECRETARIAT
Since the MC11 in Buenos Aires (see documents WT/MIN(17)/58, WT/MIN(17)/59 and WT/MIN(17)/60), documents related to the Joint Initiatives on Investment Facilitation for Development, E-Commerce and MSMEs have been issued as JOB/GC documents at the request of Members.
In moving to streamline document numbering and website placement for documents in the various JI processes the Secretariat will now implement new numbering and website arrangements on 25 March 2019.
All JOB/GC documents circulated after the MC11 regarding these three Joint Initiatives will be reissued as INF/IFD, INF/ECOM or INF/MSME with a footnote referring to the corresponding JOB/GC documents. They will be issued in the current (either restricted or unrestricted) form unless otherwise decided and they will be maintained on Documents Online with that status. Any new Joint Initiative document will be issued under these INF series.
Joint Initiatives documents will be placed in a dedicated area of the Trade Topics section of the Member website where links for each Joint Initiative will be placed. A disclaimer will be placed in a pop-up that will be visible when the link to a Joint Initiative page is clicked. The disclaimer will also be placed at the foot of the main page.
