WTO moves to closer ties with UN

This is an unhealthy development:

But on the very first day of his mandate, Supachai announced that the WTO would work more closely with agencies like the UN Development Program (UNDP), the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank, and especially the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

With respect to reaching a "real understanding" of the issues of interest to developing nations in various trade-related areas, Supachai said that it was UNCTAD that could fill the gap that the WTO would not be able to fill in the short term.
