The WTO is an international forum for negotiating trade agreements between governments.

In simple terms, its overriding purpose is to help trade flow as freely as possible, so long as there are no undesirable side effects.

The WTO was established in 1995 as the successor to the General Agreement on Tariff and Trade (GATT).
