“GATT@70” Trade Community Reception




To celebrate the  70th anniversary of the signing of the GATT, WITA held a reception. The event payed homage to the belief of the 23 nations that signed the original GATT in October 1947 that international trade is essential to “raising standards of living, ensuring full employment and a large and steadily growing volume of real income and effective demand, developing the full use of the resources of the world and expanding the production and exchange of goods.”
