Businesses that have an understanding of the history of the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) will find it easier to appreciate how they can benefit economically from the international trade regime. Volume 1 covers the following subject areas: Introduction to the world trading system, economic and political benefits of trade, structure and functioning of the WTO Fundamental rules governing international trade Customs issues including how customs authorities determine the amount of duties due on imports Non-tariff barriers WTO rules relating to subsidies How industries can obtain relief from imports causing them harm Rules applicable to trade in agricultural goods Government procurement Export Controls and Sanctions Rules applicable to Trade in Services, IP rights How disputes are settled in the WTO and regional trade agreements The book also includes case studies showing how particular industries have used the rules to open foreign markets or to protect themselves from injurious imports.
