The G20 Trade and Investment Ministerial meeting in in the coastal city of Mar del Plata concluded with delegations demanding "reforms" within the World Trade Organisation, on Friday.

SOT, Jorge Faurie, Argentinian Minister of Foreign Affairs (Spanish): "The fact that we are talking about the reform of the World Trade Organization means that we all agree that we need to have an organization that allows us to establish rules, which allows us to work within the framework of international trade."

SOT, Dante Sica, Argentinian Minister of Production and labour (Spanish): "The importance that this document has is that in the last 5 year, this is the second time that within the G-20 we can draw a text regarding this issue in the midst of tensions that we are experiencing at international trade level and the truth that it was a very frank discussion all day."

SOT, Jorge Faurie, Argentinian Minister of Foreign Affairs (Spanish): "Countries with a majority participation in the world trade expressed their points but tried to identify common points and differences they maintain also leaving it open for an agenda for building a new reality to handle international trade."

SOT, Jorge Faurie, Argentinian Minister of Foreign Affairs (Spanish): "Obviously the application of measures such as new tariffs, which hinder or over tax the registered trade are not positive. But I think that the dialogue that is being maintained at the level of the G-20 tends to determine that it is necessary to find solutions"

SOT, Dante Sica, Argentinian Minister of Production and labour (Spanish): "If it is true that every time we enter these processes or begin these processes of "commercial war" they always have global impact, then we will have to see if that somehow some countries benefit or be harmed, there will be windows or opportunities for some."
