Abstract

However one spins the news coming out of the Geneva headquarters of the World Trade Organisation ('WTO'), it would seem fair to say that the current 'Doha' or 'Development' or indeed 'Millennium' Round of multilateral trade negotiations is in dire straits. Overall agreement was narrowly missed in the summers of 2006 and again of 2008 (Doh!). Following this on-going failure, Free Trade Agreements ('FTAs') and Regional Trade Agreements ('RTAs') are very much en vogue, in the EU as elsewhere (Aha!).

Keywords: WTO, EU, trade, FTA, GSP
