WTO Ready To Approve Tajikistan's Membership

The World Trade Organization (WTO) has announced that it would likely approve Tajikistan's bid to join the WTO this December.

The WTO said on October 29 that "all members" are expected to approve the documents that Tajikistan's working group submitted for entry.

The decision is expected during a meeting of the WTO's General Council on December 11-12.

Tajikistan vowed to undertake a series of commitments designed to meet all WTO regulations.

Tajikistan has been attempting to join the WTO since 2001.

If Tajikistan meets all the criteria and WTO members approve the country's entry, Tajikistan should become a full member of the organization in 2013.
