The 9th World Trade Organisation (WTO) Conference that took place in Bali, Indonesia from 3rd to 6th December reached a draft global trade agreement that includes further trade liberalization policies including the lifting of more trade regulations and agriculture reforms. The agreement is legally binding for the 159 member states of the organisation, which includes many Muslim countries. Some are arguing that this package will benefit developing states. However, the WTO and its capitalist free-market agreements and policies has for decades only served as poison to the economies of the Muslim world, destroying local industries, fuelling mass unemployment, crippling the finances of states, and impoverishing the people of the region, with women and children as its primary victims. Now through this conference and agreement Western governments look to breathe new life into this economic monstrosity that has only ever functioned as a Western colonial instrument to exert their hegemony over the resources of nations and impose an imbalanced global economic regime of trade that unfairly advantages wealthy states over impoverished ones, as well as large multinational corporations over small domestic businesses, and the rich over the poor.
