General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GAFF) and the World Trade Organisation (WTO): The Major Provisions and the Implication for Nigeria
This paper shall review the major provisions of the GATT with respect to the Multilateral Agreements on Trade in Goods only and the likely implications for Nigeria. The review of the General Agreement on Trade in Services and the Agreement on Trade - Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights shall be covered in another exercise. The rest of the paper is, therefore, organised into five parts. Part I discusses the GATT’s basic principles and the major agreements of the latest multilateral trade negotiations otherwise known as the Uruguay Round. The World Trade Organization, its major functions, structure and the decision-making process are discussed in Part II while the implications of the agreements for Nigeria come up in Part III. Part TV contains the options facing Nigeria as a developing country. Part V of the paper contains the summary and conclusions.
