Selected issues in the JSI negotiations from a development perspective

This section provides a discussion of selected salient issues in the JSI negotiations with the objective of highlighting some of the development dimensions that any future international trade rules may need to address. The purpose is not to suggest that developing countries represent a monolithic group that will adopt a single position on these topics. Individual countries will have to determine their approach after having established a balance between competing domestic interests and the trade-offs and concessions they are willing to make with negotiating partners. This will also require an assessment of how each negotiated outcome is likely to impact their economy and society. The objective here is rather to shed light on key development concerns raised by developing countries, including non-participating countries, and on how they are being addressed by proposed provisions in the JSI negotiations. The choice was made to group together related issues which may be discussed separately in the negotiations.
