IGTN Positions on the WTO, Executive Summary

Global Women's Project | Wed, Aug 1, 2001

By IGTN
"Women declare that trade is an instrument of development not profit! The Retreat of the International Gender & Trade Network (IGTN) Held in Cape Town August 12 -18, analyzed the impact various trade agreements in the World Trade Organization, have on women, households and communities. The IGTN affirms that there is a need for countries to trade, we further state that trade serves as one of the instruments for achieving the goals that we seek: prosperity, stability, freedom, and gender equality. We will resist any form of trade that evaluates our needs from the perspective of expanding world trade instead of development and poverty eradication."
