COMMEMORATING AFGHANISTAN'S 5TH ANNIVERSARY OF WTO MEMBERSHIP
Afghanistan is the latest addition to the WTO family which became the 164th Member of the Organization on 29 July 2016, following 12 years of accession negotiations. Despite the serious capacity constrains faced by Afghanistan as a fragile and conflict-affected least-developed country (LDC), it has demonstrated exceptional commitment to integration in the multilateral trading system and global economy and set a high standard for LDCs participation in the WTO.

This 5-year anniversary provides for a timely opportunity to reflect on the results of the first years of Afghanistan's WTO membership, assess the impact of WTO accession and the remaining challenges, including those recently caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and to exchange views with WTO Members and development partners on the way ahead, with the objective to maximize benefits from Afghanistan's participation in the WTO.
