By the end of the month Belarus will have held a series of consultations with the United States on joining the World Trade Organization. Negotiations on accession to the WTO are proceeding on schedule. Belarus has yet to sign agreements with the key players, including the United States and the European Union. In December, Geneva is hosting this year's last round of negotiations with the participation of all the interested working group members. Belarus plans to complete accession to the WTO in June next year.
