Brussels, 5 December 2017

The Global Progressive Forum strongly regrets the Argentinian government’s decision to deny access to several trade unions and NGOs at the World Trade Organisation (WTO) conference taking place in Buenos Aires 10-13 December 2017.
 
We consider that to achieve good results at the conference and greater legitimacy for the decisions that will be taken there, it is crucial to involve all stakeholders and have a transparent dialogue.
 
We call on the Argentine government to review their decision immediately and ensure the democratic participation of all representatives of civil society and workers.
 
* The Global Progressive Forum (GPF) is an international network promoted by the Party of the European Socialists and the Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament to connect progressive forces from around the world and develop a global progressive agenda.
