Mission Statement Edit
The official stated purpose of the Ministry of Trade is to facilitate and promote trade and commerce on Azeroth. It aims to encourage private sector development by removing regulations blocking trade and investment, eliminating import licensing rules, and embarking on wide-ranging projects to promote a new trading environment in the Kingdom of Stormwind: an anti-corruption drive, a consumer welfare and protection unit, a “Stormwind International Fair" site and the leasing of Stormwind venues to private developers.
The MTI has a wide range of responsibilities. There are ultimately eight main areas covered by the MTI:
- Company Law
