Afghanistan to gain accession to WTO by 2014

WTOAfghanistan might complete its accession process and gain membership to the World Trade Organization (WTO) by 2014, said officials.

The country obtained the status of a representative in the Organization in 2004, when it first applied for membership.

The membership is expected to bring economic opportunities to the country, enhance investment in the country and solve some of the major transit issues of Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, some pundits believe the membership would not be of any significance, as Afghanistan’s production level is very low.
