Interim Commission for the International Trade Organization (ICITO) and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT)

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Employment (Havana, Cuba, November 1947-March 1948) drew up a charter for an International Trade Organization (ITO) and established an Interim Commission for the International Trade Organization (ICITO). The charter was never accepted and ITO was never established. While drawing up the charter, members of the Preparatory Committee negotiated tariffs among themselves and drew up the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), which entered into force on 1 January 1948 with 23 Contracting Parties. Since then, ICITO has provided the GATT secretariat.
