Book Launch
Regional Trade Agreements and the Multilateral Trading System

Thursday, 29 September 2016
#WTO Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland
Centre William Rappard, Room W

Programme
Moderator: Rohini Acharya, Editor

14.30 – 14.40 Opening remarks and launch of the book
Roberto Azevêdo, WTO Director-General

14.40 – 14.50 Presentation of the book
Rohini Acharya, Editor and Chief of Section, Regional Trade Agreements, in the Trade Policies Review Division

14.50 – 15.15 Panel discussion
Daniel Blockert, Permanent Representative of the Swedish Mission to the World Trade Organization and Chair of the Committee on Regional Trade Agreements

Bernard Hoekman, Professor and Director, Global Economics at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University Institute

15.15 – 15.30 Questions and answers

The book contains a collection of studies examining trade-related issues negotiated in regional trade agreements (RTAs) and how RTAs are related to the WTO’s rules. While previous work has focused on subsets of RTAs, these studies are based on what is probably the largest dataset used to date, and highlight key issues that have been negotiated in all RTAs notified to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). New rules within RTAs are compared to rules agreed upon by WTO members. The extent of their divergences and the potential implications for parties to RTAs, as well as for WTO members that are not parties to RTAs, are examined. This volume makes an important contribution to the current debate on the role of the WTO in regulating international trade and how WTO rules relate to new rules being developed by RTAs.

The book launch will take place during the WTO Public Forum 2016 held from 27-29 September 2016.

Participants are invited to register online at www.wto.org/PF16.

Twenty-first century Africa is in a process of economic transformation, but challenges remain in areas such as structural reform, governance, commodity pricing and geopolitics. This book looks into key questions facing the continent, such as how Africa can achieve deeper integration into the rules-based multilateral trading system and the global economy. It provides a range of perspectives on the future of the multilateral trading system and Africa’s participation in global trade. It also underlines the supportive roles that can be played by multilateral and regional institutions during such a rapid and uncertain transition.

This volume is based on contributions to the Fourth China Round Table on WTO Accessions and the Multilateral Trading System, which took place just before the WTO's Tenth Ministerial Conference in Nairobi in December 2015.
