Council for Trade in Goods - Report (2019) of the Council for Trade in Goods


In accordance with the "Procedures for an Annual Overview of WTO Activities and for Reporting under the WTO" (WT/L/105), the Council for Trade in Goods (CTG, or the Council) is to report each year to the General Council on the activities in the Council as well as those in its subsidiary bodies. The reports are to be "factual in nature, containing an indication of actions and decisions taken, with cross‑references to reports of subordinate bodies and could follow the model of the GATT 1947 Council reports to the CONTRACTING PARTIES".


Since its 2018 Annual Report (G/L/1282 and G/L/1282/Add.1) was issued, the CTG met three times in formal session, on the following dates: 11 and 12 April 2019 (G/C/M/134[1]); 8 and 9 July 2019 (G/C/M/135); and 14 and 15 November 2019 (G/C/M/136[2]).
