In mid-September bilateral talks on Russia's accession to the World Trade Organization will resume after a two-month hiatus
In mid-September bilateral talks on Russia's accession to the World Trade Organization will resume after a two-month hiatus, head of the Russian delegation Maxim Medvedkov said Tuesday. "We intend to resume bilateral talks in mid-September, and in late October the next session of the Working Party on Russia's WTO membership will meet," Medvedkov said. There are currently 13 countries with which Russia has not yet completed talks. Russia has held talks with 54 countries, of which 36 have already signed protocols. "The talks can be considered completed with five of the countries, technical questions remain that need to be addressed for the talks to be concluded," he said. The countries with which talks are ongoing include the United States, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, and Australia. Medvedkov said Russia had yet to resolve air travel customs duties, and access to the Russian financial services market with the U.S. and Canada. There are at least two more rounds of talks to be held with Canada, he said. Brazil, Argentina, and Australia are concerned about the agricultural sector, particularly meat quotas and duties on sugar. "At the Working Party session in Geneva in October, energy pricing, technical regulation, retail operations, and veterinary measures will be discussed," Medvedkov said.
