TDS LIVE | Requiring Local Content in Extractive Industries: Key E15 Policy Options for the WTO

Session objectives 

The effective, efficient, and sustainable management of mineral resources is essential for global economic growth and development. The extraction and trade in such resources pose challenges and opportunities for resource-rich countries, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. In this session, speakers from the E15 expert group on Extractive Industries will discuss how host countries can derive optimal economic benefits from their natural resource endowments and secure employment both for present and future generations. The speakers will assess whether existing international trade and investment frameworks are adequately addressing the benefit sharing and how the WTO can foster local participation in extractive industries.
