'' The WTO is a rules-based, member-driven organization— all decisions are made by the member governments, and the rules are the outcome of negotiations among members. ''
(from the WTO 'about the organization' page )_http://www.wto.org/english/thewto_e/thewto_e.htm

''The World Trade Organization (WTO) is the only global international organization dealing with the rules of trade between nations.''
(from http://www.wto.org/english/thewto_e/whatis_e/whatis_e.htm)

''primary purpose is to open trade for the benefit of all.''

WTO and predecessors GATT have ''helped to create a strong and prosperous international trading system, thereby contributing to unprecedented global economic growth.''

''The highest institutional body is the Ministerial Conference, which meets roughly every two years''

' The WTO is a global commercial police that ensures countries are required to purchase from transnational corporations in favour of their own locally produced goods, in the name of "lowering trade barriers". '
