Trade Minister Yoo emphasized the need for the normalization of the WTO Appellate Body and the WTO reform. She went on to point out that because Korea is well placed to understand the positions of both developed and developing countries, it can make constructive contributions to the maintenance of the multilateral trading system represented by the WTO.
