At their Summit in Buenos Aires on 30 November – 1 December 2018, G20 Leaders agreed to support the necessary reform of the WTO to improve its functioning. The objective of the reform is to strengthen the WTO, which is the foundation on which the vast majority of global trade is conducted. Ensuring a stronger foundation for global trade will also benefit UK trade with the EU after the UK leaves the EU.
