World Trade Organization is a legislative and judicial body that intends to supervise and liberalize international trade. By promoting the free trade agenda of multinational corporations above the interests of local communities, working families, and the environment, the WTO has systematically undermined democracy around the world. WTO is responsible for providing a forum for trade negotiations, handling trade disputes, and monitoring national trade policies. It also administers WTO agreements, provides technical assistance to developing countries, and cooperates with other international bodies on trade issues. The main pillars of the WTO are the multilateral trade agreements, including the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) and the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property rights (TRIPS). These agreements do contain some provisions for the protection of public health and safety but they remain controversial. It is an organization of 159 members that deals with the rules of trade between nations. With Russia's accession in August 2012, the WTO encompasses all major trading economies. The WTO works to help international trade flow smoothly, predictably, and freely, and provides countries with a constructive and fair outlet for dealing with disputes over trade issues. The WTO came into being in 1995, succeeding the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) that was established in 1947.

SBS Transit - Beyond just being a people mover SBS Transit is a leading bus and rail operator in Singapore. Every day, we carry close to three million passengers on our extensive bus and rail network. But we believe in not just being a people mover - we believe in the journey, and not just the destination. This is why we have invested extensively in technology and training, constantly looking to upgrade not just our operations but our people as well. We were formed in only 1973 through the merger of three private bus companies. We grew quickly and by 1978, we were listed on the Stock Exchange of Singapore (now known as SGX) as Singapore Bus Service (1978). In November 1997, the Company was renamed DelGro Corporation Limited with a subsidiary, Singapore Bus Services Limited, listed separately on the SGX. In November 2001, Singapore Bus Services Limited had a change in name to SBS Transit Ltd to reflect our new bi-modal status as a bus and rail operator when we won the licence to operate the North East MRT Line. In 2003, SBS Transit became a part of the ComfortDelGro Group when Comfort Group and DelGro Corp merged to form ComfortDelGro Corporation, one of the world's largest land transport companies. As part of an international, multi-modal transport company, we have been able to leverage on the Group's extensive resources, expertise and knowledge to bring about higher levels of service and comfort for our Singapore commuters. SBS Transit aims to provide world-class public transport which is safe, comfortable, affordable, reliable and friendly. Today, we operate about 250 bus services with a fleet of close to 3,000 buses. The buses serve 16 interchanges and more than 3,500 bus stops island-wide. We also operate the North East MRT Line, which is the world's first fully automated, underground heavy rail system, that connects Punggol to HarbourFront. We also operate the Light Rail System in the Punggol and Sengkang new towns. Recently, SBS Transit won the tender to operate the Downtown Line - a 42-km line with 34 stations - which is expected to be operational from 2013.
