Developing countries and the Uruguay Round of trade negotiations

Developing countries and the Uruguay Round of trade negotiations

Proceedings of the World Bank annual conference on development economics 1989: 21-60

DOI: 10.1093/wber/3.suppl_1.21

This paper, which summarizes recent developments in the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations, addresses the key questions developing countries must consider in their negotiating: trade and welfare costs and benefits of protection for developing countries; how developing countries will be affected by, and what might they concede in connection with, tariffs and tariff escalation, the protection of textiles and apparel, such market access issues as antidumping and countervailing duties, and such 'grey area' measures as voluntary export restraints; concessions they should want, and be willing to make; gains or losses from the so-called new themes of the Uruguay Round: trade-related investment measures, intellectual property, and services; net importers of food products' losses or gains from reduced agricultural protection; the effect of dismantling the Multifibre Arrangement on developing countries; overall trade liberalization's effects and whether trade issues should be negotiated in isolation from such factors as the debt crisis and conditions imposed by international agencies. A. Olechowski and G.P. Sampson provide discussion.
