Article : Reshaping the World Trading System - Second edition

A non-technical, accessible look at the history of the Uruguay Round agreements
About the WTO

Description :

Take 120 government and territories, each bent on vigorously seeking its own self-interest. Give them a mandate to reach agreement on new rules for more open markets - not only for goods but for services and intellectual property as well. And give them a time-limit - four years. It sounds impossible and it almost was. This is the story, told in frank, lively and non-technical terms, of how and why the Uruguay Round came about, what the participant countries sought, and the twists, turns, setbacks and successes of each stage and sector of the negotiations … and how, after seven years, the final achievement in many instances surpassed the original goals.
