New webpage to mark government procurement pact anniversary

The WTO released on 12 October a new webpage to mark a dual anniversary for the WTO’s plurilateral Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA). The first version of the Agreement was adopted 40 years ago in 1981, during the days of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), while the first WTO GPA entered into force 25 years ago in 1996.
