The 12th ministerial conference of WTO scheduled to hold in Nur-Sultan has been moved to Geneva, the WTO announced on Monday.

The 12th ministerial conference of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) earlier scheduled to hold in the Kazakh capital of Nur-Sultan has been moved to Geneva, the WTO announced on Monday.

The organisation annouced this on  Twitter

“WTO members have just agreed that the organisation’s 12th Ministerial Conference will take place on Nov. 29, 2021 in Geneva, Switzerland.

“The conference will be chaired by Kazakhstan’s Minister of Trade and Integration, Bakhyt Sultanov,’’ WTO wrote.

The ministerial conference was due to be held in summer 2020 in Nur-Sultan but was canceled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier reports suggested that the conference could be held in Nur-Sultan in summer 2021. (Sputnik/NAN)
