G20 leaders agree on need for reform of the world trade organization (WTO), says the final Declaration of the summit «group of twenty», which ended in Buenos Aires.

«International trade and investment are important engines of growth, productivity, innovation, job creation and development. We acknowledge the contributions of the international trading system. Currently it does not reach your goals, and there are opportunities for improvement. In this regard, we support the reform of the WTO», — stated in the outcome document, agreed by all heads of state enterprises.

The communiqué also specified that the leaders will review progress in achieving this target at the next G20 summit, to be held in Japan in June 2019.
