RWE argues it has the legal permission for the logging, and that its activity is supported by the … Read more

with No Comments

On December 13 the 11th inter-ministerial conference of the WTO ended. The conference could not reach a needed consensus for the signing of a final document between the ministers, mainly due to the confrontation between protectionism and multilateralism. Just in parallel, the Peoples’ Summit took place during these days, which filled Buenos Aires with demands, debates and alternatives. The new US government that turned to protectionist positions, came to this summit with clear criticism of the WTO. Against this, China … Read more
