Antigua and Barbuda was represented by a three member delegation comprising HE Mr Colin Murdoch, Permanent Secretary, Division of Trade, Industry and Commerce Antigua and Barbuda, HE Dr Carl B Roberts, High Commissioner to the Court of nent Representative of Antigua and Barbuda to the WTO, and Ms Sharon James, Trade Commissioner, Division of Trade, Industry and Commerce Antigua and Barbuda. HE Mr Colin Murdoch, as Head of Delegation, addressed the Ministerial Conference on the 17 th December on behalf of Antigua and Barbuda and highlighted the plight of Small and Vulnerable Economies (SVE) and Small Island States (SIDS) under which classifications Antigua and Barbuda falls. Ambassador Murdoch also reminded the conference of the unresolved issue which exists between Antigua and Barbuda and the USA and called upon the WTO Secretariat to be more proactive in addressing imbalance in the Dispute Resolution system particularly when small member states come up against larger members in trade disputes. The Conference took up the accession of Russia, Samoa and Montenegro and adopted a number of resolutions in the final session. A number of OECS Member States were also present at the Conference and met before, as well as during, the Conference to coordinate their presentations. * * * REMINDER NOTICE NON MACHINE READABLE PASSPORTS WILL BE OUT OF YOUR PASSPORTS AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE New Style Caribbean Community Antigua and Barbuda Passport Antigua and Barbuda High Commission, 2nd Floor, 45 Crawford Place, London W1H 4LP For more information or to make an appointment please Telephone 020 7258 0070 H E Dr Carl B W Roberts and H E Mr Colin Murdoch representing Antigua and Barbuda at the WTO Ministerial Meeting Geneva
