WTO Ministerial Conference in Doha, Qatar

As the relevant standard-setting organization for animal health and zoonotic diseases, the OIE has an active and strong collaboration with the World Trade Organization (WTO), in particular with its Sanitary and Phytosanitary Committee. The OIE works with the WTO and other international organizations to assist the participation of developing countries in standard-setting activities as well as in benefiting from the implementation of the SPS Agreement. The OIE also co-ordinates efforts with the developing countries at a regional level to identify sanitary -related technical assistance needs.

The Conference has taken note of the commitments taken to this effect by the Directors General of the OIE and of the other organizations and has asked the WTO Director General to ensure its continuation and to reinforce the actions already engaged to the benefit of developing countries.
