An Assessment

image of The Uruguay Round and Developing Countries

This study provides an overall assessment of the implications of the Uruguay Round for a broad crosssection of developing Commonwealth countries. It also makes recommendations on policy options open to them. It is hoped that the study will provide a good basis for member governments in assessing the policy implications of the impending changes in the international trading system in the context of their economies, and in formulating appropriate responses.



Introduction and Overview

The Uruguay Round is rightly regarded as having been the most ambitious, and most difficult, of all of the GATT Rounds so far. It may also turn out to be the last. The Agreement was seven years in the making, at the end of which the negotiators delivered a package which was certainly comprehensive and in some areas at least, possibly quite radical.
