This book is a practical guide for those who are working within the field of trade, or trade law. It contains the most quoted agreements on world trade. These agreements together provide a basic insight in the regulations concerning world trade. Since its existence, the World Trade Organization (WTO) has agreed on several important legal basic rules for international commerce. These agreements are negotiated and signed by most of world’s trading nations, and are contracts with a binding legal force to prevent governments from exceeding international trade limits. Although signed by governments, the purpose of these agreements is to help producers of goods and services, exporters and importers to carry out their business, while at the same time allowing governments to meet social and environmental objectives.
