Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

The final act on the outcomes of the Uruguay Round multilateral trade agreements consists of the final act itself, the WTO agreement (“WTO agreement”) and the agreements attached to it, as well as additional GATT agreements, decisions and declarations. The text can be found in various sources: 1867 U.N.T.S. 3, 33 I.L.M 9 (1994) (December 1993) and 33 I.M 1143 (April 1994) (April 1994), The Final Act Embodying the Results of the Uruguay Round of Multilateral Trade Negotiations (K4603 1987). A3 1994), The Legal Texts: The Results of the Uruguay Round of Multilateral Trade Negotiations (K4603 1987.A4 1999), nachdruck der Ergebnisse der Uruguay Round multilaterale Handelsverhandlungens: Die Rechtstexte (Perkins/Bostock Ref. JZ5185 . R478 1994) and in Uruguay`s multilateral trade round (online and in the microform room, submitted to the GATT Documents, PrEx 9.2:your 8/13). The text is also available online on the WTO website. Two of the most important agreements are the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), 33 I.L.M. 44 (1994) (December 1993) and 1869 UNTS 183, 33 I.L.M 1167 (1994) (April 1994) and the Agreement on Trade-Related Intellectual Property (TRIPS), 33 I.L.M. 81 (1994) (December 1993) and 1869 UNTS 299, 33 L.M 1197 (1994) (April 1994).

The agreement opened the door to open trade by ending tariffs on various goods and services and implementing equality between Canada, America and Mexico. NAFTA has allowed tariff exemption for agricultural products such as eggs, maize and meat. This has allowed companies to act freely and import and export different products at the North American level. Petros Mavroidis, Trade in Goods: The GATT and the Other WTO Agreements Regulating Trade in Goods, 2d ed. (TRLN Shared Print K4600 . M393 2012 and online) provides historical and economic justification for the development of the multilateral trading system, while providing an analysis of WTO jurisprudence and product trade. The WTO website contains a chronological list of disputes and related documents. For each dispute, the site displays the current status, important facts, a summary of the disputed controversy and there is a link titled “All Documents” where users can see the many documents related to the case. At the beginning of the GATT, the focus was on reducing tariffs and import duties to promote trade and reduce protectionism. This target has been largely achieved for industrial production over many business cycles.
