The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) has extended its institutional arsenal since the Kennedy round in the early 1960s. The current institutional design is the outcome of the Uruguay round and agreements reached in the ongoing Doha round (begun in 2001). One of the institutional outgrowths of GATT is the World Trade Organization (WT0), created in 1995. In this book, Petros Mavroidis offers a detailed examination of WTO agreements regulating trade in goods, discussing legal context, policy background, economic rationale, and case law. Each chapter examines a given legal norm and its subsequent practice. In particular, he discusses agreements dealing with customs clearance; "contingent protection" instruments, which allow WTO members unilaterally to add to the negotiated amount of protection when a certain contingency (for example, dumping) has occurred; TBT (Technical Barriers to Trade) and SPS (Sanitary and Phyto-sanitary Measures) agreements, both of which deal with such domestic instruments as environmental, health policy, or consumer information; the agreement on Trade Related Investment Measures (TRIM); sector-specific agreements on agriculture and textiles; plurilateral agreements (binding a subset of WTO membership) on government procurement and civil aviation; and transparency in trade relations. This book's companion volume examines the GATT regime for international trade.

Gatt, Wto and the Regulation of International Trade in Textiles

Published in 1997, in this book an attempt has been made to analyze the legal structure of GATT and the WTO as well as those agreements which control trade in textiles. One of the GATT's major failures was its inability to come into line with the new economic reality and the needs of those states who created this system for controlling international trade. Trade in textiles was an excellent example of this. Now, the WTO aims to overcome this problem thanks to its greater pragmatism and its search for solutions to free trade difficulties. The WTO is not, however, the perfect solution. Its highly political character allows room for improvement even though the key to its success still lies with the effective cooperation of member states. As for the textile sector, this new panorama for trade in goods provides it with a new opportunity to finally return to the general legal framework in the year 2005.

This collection of essays takes stock of the key challenges that have arisen since the entry into force of the General Agreement on Trade in Services in the mid-1990s and situates them in the context of the WTO's Doha Development Agenda and the proliferation of preferential agreements addressing services today. The multidisciplinary approach provides an opportunity for many of the world's leading experts and a number of new analytical voices to exchange ideas on the future of services trade and regulation. Cosmopolitan approaches to the treatment of labour mobility, the shape of services trade disciplines in the digital age and pro-competitive regulation in air transport are explored with a view to helping readers gain a better understanding of the forces shaping the changes. An essential read for all those concerned with the evolution of the rules-based trading system and its impact on the service economy.

Regional and Global Regulation of International Trade

Release On

The processes of legal and economic integration at a regional and global scale have created powerful legal and economic dilemmas. They challenge the paradigms of constitutionalism, including the State's monopoly of constitutionalism, the autonomy of national political communities and the traditional forms of participation and representation. The phenomena of globalization and regional forms of governance have promoted the interdependence of national political communities and destroyed the artificial boundaries upon which national constitutional democracies are found and from which they derive their legitimacy. Furthermore, it is inevitable that the development of international trade and economic integration will raise claims for some form of global distributive justice to complement the wealth maximization arising from free trade. This will come from the gradual development of global forms of political discourse and law-making, challenging State constitutionalism and requiring some of the instruments and theories of constitutionalism. The essays in this collection, written by leading scholars in international trade law, argue the pros and cons of greater regional and global regulation. They conclude that whatever the final framework for international trade, the critical decisions about institutional form and content will be decided in an emerging global political arena. They help to identify this political arena, who governs it, and according to which rules, and identify the different institutional alternatives in that global political arena.

Regulation of Foreign Mergers and Acquisitions Involving Listed Companies in the People's Republic of China

Since its accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO), China has undertaken stronger initiatives toward adapting its legal system to support the development of a market-oriented economy. However, in this important new study the author contends that China's steps in this direction are not sufficient. Although barriers to merger and acquisition (M&A) targeting of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) have been significantly reduced, excessive administrative intervention continues to discourage foreign M&Ainvolving domestic listed companies. This book proposes changes in Chinese law, including a new full-scale regulatory scheme, which would enhance and expand such foreign direct investment. The discussion proceeds from the perspectives of company law, securities law, antimonopoly law, and foreign investment law. Based on the analysis of the market situation and policy background in China, and on a comparison among the relevant aspects of the legal systems of China and other jurisdictions, the book addresses the Chinese legal system for foreign M&A involving listed companies, including its policy support. The analysis highlights such aspects as the following: * features and structures of the current Chinese foreign M&A market; * China's state-owned enterprise reform * functions of the Chinese stock market; * Chinese foreign investment policy; * components of the Chinese legal system specific to foreign M&A; and * comparative studies of foreign M&A regulation and experience (US, EU, UK, and Russia) and what may be useful in each for China. The author's detailed recommendations for the improvement of the Chinese legal system primarily concern the regime of state ownership exercise, the establishment of an antitrust scheme, the improvement in the regulation of corporate takeovers, and national treatment of foreign investors under the WTO system. This is in every way a ground-breaking contribution to the literature of international trade law. The author's deeply informed and cogent analysis will be of immeasurable value to policy makers and academics across a range of fields, and the book's practical value to business persons everywhere with an eye on China cannot be overestimated.
