Overview

The World Trade Organization (WTO) is a multilateral organization whose objective is to help trade flow smoothly, freely, fairly and predictably. It does this by acting as a forum for trade negotiations, settling trade disputes and assisting developing countries in trade policy issues, through technical assistance and training programmes.

Realizing the significance of WTO and its implications, the Government of the Punjab constituted the “Advisory Body on WTO” which includes the secretaries from all the concerned departments of Provincial Government as members. Being a member of Advisory Body, Agriculture Department, along with other departments, was also required to establish a WTO Cell in the department. WTO Cell in Agriculture Department was established in September, 2002. The DDC approved the development scheme “Establishment of WTO Cell, at PARB” under ADP 2002-2003. Government of Punjab transferred the project from Development to Non-Development Scheme w.e.f. 01-07-2004 vide letter No. SO(R&E) 3-14/2003-S-WTO
