The idea of a simulation of this kind in Belgrade was developed after recognizing the immense importance of international trade and the need to offer the best students the opportunity to tackle challenges that the world is presently facing.
The project was designed in collaboration with Model WTO and Model WTO International.
The second edition of the simulation took place in October 2019 at the Faculty of Economics and the Contemporary Gymnasium.
The first edition of Model WTO Belgrade was held in May 2018 at the premises of the Faculty of Economics as well as the Serbian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and It brought together the best students from Serbia.
