World Trade Organization (WTO)

In 2002, the World Trade Organization (WTO), the legal and institutional foundation of the multilateral trading system, continued to oversee the rules of international trade, settle trade disputes and organize trade negotiations. Under the Doha Development Agenda, launched by the Fourth (2001) Ministerial Conference [YUN 2001, p. 1432], WTO pursued negotiations to liberalize further market access for services, agricultural products (both begun in 2000) and manufactured goods. The deadline for the successful conclusion of the Agenda was 1 January 2005.
