Non-Tariff Measures and the Post-Bali Agenda

Considerations for Commonwealth African Countries

This issue of Commonwealth Trade Hot Topics will focus only on non-tariff measures (NTMs) as they fall within the non-agricultural market access (NAMA) pillar of the Doha Development Agenda (DDA) negotiations in light of the WTO 10th Ministerial Conference in Nairobi, Kenya. It provides an overview of the scope of NTMs, and offers key considerations for Commonwealth developing countries vis-à-vis NTMs (e.g. in the post-Bali work plan).
