1.1. We, the Ministers, have met in Bali, Indonesia, from 3 to 6 December 2013 at our Ninth Session. As we conclude our Session, we would like to express our deep appreciation to the Government and people of Indonesia for the excellent organization and the warm hospitality we have received in Bali.
1.2. We reaffirm the principles and objectives set out in the Marrakesh Agreement Establishing the World Trade Organization. We also recall the Declarations and Decisions we adopted at Doha and at the Ministerial Conferences we have held since then and reaffirm our full commitment to give effect to them.
1.3. To this effect, we take note of the reports from the General Council and its subsidiary bodies. We welcome the progress that these reports, and the Decisions stemming from them, show in the work of the WTO, thereby strengthening its effectiveness and the multilateral trading system as a whole.
1.4. We particularly welcome the advances made in the Doha Development Agenda (DDA), as represented by the Decisions and Declarations we have adopted at our present session. These Decisions and Declarations signify that we have taken a major step forward in the negotiations and attest to our strong resolve to complete the DDA.
