Revise trade rules and reform WTO - Conte

Don't give way to protectionist pressures

(ANSA) - Buenos Aires, November 29 - Premier Giuseppe Conte told the G20 Thursday that global trade rules had to be revised and the World TRade Organization reformed.
    "We need a global reflection on trade, a revision of its rules and a renewal of the mechanisms of the workings of the World Trade Organisation, to ensure the creation of a real level playing field," he said.
    This would mean that those "who benefit from free trade also respect the rules on which it is based, including the principle of safeguarding intellectual property, to guarantee innovation.
    "The alternative is to give way to protectionist pressures".
