Russia, Moldova sign WTO accession protocol. Russian EconMin German Gref and Moldovan EconMin Igor Dodon signed WTO accession protocol. In order to sign this document Russia had to promise to reverse import embargo on Moldovan wine, which is the main export good of the country. On Nov 19, Russia signed a WTO agreement with the US, which opened way for further multilateral negotiations on WTO accession. Russia will be able to join WTO in 2007, German Gref said last month. Russia still needs to sign bilateral protocols with Guatemala , Costa-Rica and Salvador . However, the agreements with these countries already were reached. The most important thing for Russia is to get an agreement of Georgia , as it is the only country, which still does not support Russia ’s entry to WTO.
