Geneva, Switzerland

EU Ambassador to the WTO Marc Vanheukelen, prior to a meeting of the WTO's General Council. ''As the world's largest trading entity, and the single largest provider of Aid for Trade, the EU, speaking with one voice in the WTO ...As laid down by Treaty, the European Union institutions have exclusive competence over international trade policy.''

The World Trade Organisation has 164 members, and in theory, negotiates and regulates global trade. It is, however, in crisis: New multi-lateral trade negotiations have been stalled for years, while it's principle dispute settlement body, the 'crown jewels' of the WTO and the global trading system, is almost completely blocked.
