A Handbook on Accession to the WTO : A WTO Secretariat Publication, Paperback / softback Book

A Handbook on Accession to the WTO : A WTO Secretariat Publication Paperback / softback

Part of the World Trade Organization series


The Handbook provides a detailed explanation and analysis of the process whereby governments become Members of the WTO.

The WTO Agreement, which came into force on 1 January, 1995, provides few details on how this process is to take place.

Consequently, the steps in the detailed negotiations leading up to access have evolved through the actual negotiations for governments which have become Members of the WTO since 1995.

This handbook provides an account of how the process evolved and in offering details on the process as it is now applied.

Moreover, the input of the WTO Secretariat into the preparation of the guide provides information not available until now to anyone outside the Secretariat.

The Secretariat has supported production of this handbook in the hope it will serve as a useful source of reference for officials from acceding governments, WTO Members, academia, and the general public.
