Answer this question:

Select one organization; the United Nations, or the World Trade Organization.

What is the relationship between this organization and international business?

The relationship that I see between World Trade Organization (WTO) and international business is that the WTO plays a neutral role in the system of trade and negotiation for all members involved in international business to include imports and exports. The WTO in responsible for providing, maintaining and ensuring that: legal ground-rules are upheld by all members involved in international business. International business is able to continue imports and exports while all government agencies maintain social and environmental objectives through WTO supervision.
