Sample text

That the WTO should be more transparent in its operations was the express wish of the Group-of-Eight (G-8) leaders in the Kyushu–Okinawa summit (2000). There have also been problems in obtaining information on the activities of the WTO; critics have felt that the organization was being secretive because it was trying to hide something that was not in the interests of stakeholders. Opacity apart, the decision-making process that was developed half a century ago was found to be completely unsuitable for the contemporary period.

In what she referred to as a ‘grand bargain’, Ostry (2001 and 2002) pointed out that during the Uruguay Round exchanges of trade concessions, developing economies agreed to exchange increased market access in two areas, namely agriculture and textiles and apparel, in the industrial economies in return for acquiescing agreements in intellectual property rights, services and investment.

Five working or negotiation groups were planned, each to be chaired by a trade minister and that could be divided into sub-groups. 26 Brazil’s name was proposed for presiding over the negotiation group on implementation of the recommendations of the Uruguay Round, and the one on systemic issues (transparency and relations with the civil society) was going to be chaired by Chile.
