Abe Says Overhauling World Trade Organization Is High on G-20 Agenda

Apr 29 , 2019

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he would use the country’s presidency this year of the Group of 20 large industrialized and emerging countries to push for an overhaul of the World Trade Organization.

At a joint press conference in Ottawa with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Mr. Abe said the WTO has failed to adapt to a changing economy.

“The reality of the 21st century must be reflected in the making of trade rules,” Mr. Abe said. “The WTO is not catching up with the changes in the economy, so therefore the WTO must be reformed.”
