The biennial Trade and Sustainable Development Symposium, organised by the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) and held alongside the WTO ministerial conference for over a decade, is the leading multi-stakeholder platform for intellectual enquiry and dialogue on sustainable development and the global trade and investment system. It acts as an inclusive platform outside of the WTO negotiating setting for sharing ideas, engaging in dialogue, and influencing trade policy negotiations. Drawing in participants from government, business and civil society, the Symposium helps to maintain and elaborate a global vision of sustainable development in trade and investment policymaking.

MAIZALL
Coordinator
Argentina, Brazil, USA
MAIZALL is a voluntary, non-governmental organization representing grower organizations in major exporting countries interested in the international trade in corn. MAIZALL’s members recognize that the world’s population is growing; that the global middle class is growing even faster; and that global food demand will challenge producers of all commodities in all countries in the years ahead. While they are competitors for market share around the world, grower exporters share a common commitment to providing global consumers with enhanced diets, food security, food safety, and increased quality, variety, and consumer choice. MAIZALL’s members understand that modern agricultural techniques and an open, transparent, fair international trading system are essential to meeting these objectives.
