This year’s Public Forum, entitled 'Trading Forward: Adapting to a Changing World', will feature 137 sessions focusing on how to adapt to a rapidly changing trading environment. The forum, which will be held on 8-11 October, will also offer participants an opportunity to consider the increasing role for services in trade, the aspirations of youth for the future trading system, and how the WTO should change to meet current and future challenges.

The Public Forum is the WTO’s largest annual outreach event, which provides a platform for participants to discuss the latest developments in world trade and to propose ways of enhancing the multilateral trading system. The event regularly attracts over 1500 representatives from civil society, academia, business, the media, governments, parliamentarians, and inter-governmental organisations.
