Seattle and Beyond: The WTO Millennium Round
Patrick Grady, Kathleen Maccmillan, Kathleen MacmillanISBN: 0968621007;
This book is a comprehensive guide to the Millennium Round of multilateral trade negotiations which will be launched at the Third WTO Ministerial Meeting in Seattle in early December 1999. It deals in a readable way with the many difficult and controversial issues that will arise during the planned three-year negotiations. These include: the new trade areas like the environment, labour standards, e-commerce and competition policy; the issues that were new in the last Uruguay Round, such as trade in services and intellectual property rights, that are still far from resolved; and trade in agriculture, which is still badly in need of reform after a modest start in the last Round. This book will provide all those interested in international business anddomestic policy matters with the comprehensive overview they need to understand the dynamics of the WTO Millennium Round and the complex interaction of the trade and domestic policy issues.
