The Pacific Island States and the WTO: Towards a Post-Seattle Agenda for Small Vulnerable States

The purpose of this paper is to update participants on recent developments in the WTO as they pertain to some of the world's smallest, least developed and most vulnerable economies in the Western and Central Pacific. At present three Forum island countries (FICs) of the 14 independent island states of the Pacific are members of the WTO. These countries, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Fiji, were either GATT de facto members or acceded immediately prior to the completion of the Uruguay Round and are WTO founder members.
