WTO opens its doors to the public

Sep '09
On Sunday 6 September the World Trade Organization will open its doors to the public for the first time. Throughout the day, there will be a variety of activities on offer, including guided tours of the building, insights into the work of the WTO and special activities for children.

The Open Day will offer visitors the chance to find out more about what the WTO does, to meet with WTO staff and to engage with representatives of the membership of the WTO.

The WTO Director-General, Pascal Lamy, summed up the aim of the day: “This Open Day will be a chance to discover the WTO in all its facets — historical, cultural and international — as well as to understand the importance of international trade to the prosperity of all the world's citizens”.

The Open Day will begin at 10 a.m. with a brief opening ceremony and welcome address. This will be followed by a short film about the WTO, which will be shown at regular intervals throughout the day. Food stands will provide an international buffet offering specialities from the WTO's Member countries. All proceeds from the day will go to a local charity “Païdos”, a centre which helps children and adolescents in difficult situations or with behavioural problems.

“We are also organizing this event”, said Pascal Lamy, “in order to send a strong signal that we are part of the Geneva community, a community to which we have been inextricably linked for 60 years.”
