Abstract: I am very pleased to be here representing the multilateral institution which sets the rules for international trade in order to address this very distinguished gathering in such a vital part of the world. Let me say at the outset that the organizers of this conference have set me a very challenging theme: namely the "WTO and the commodification of cultural products". Does this mean that the World Trade Organization, concerned as it is with trade liberalization, has turned audiovisual and other cultural products into commodities? And if not, does it mean that such a process is inevitable? And what could this imply for the countries in this region?
