20th Anniversary of the Signing of the WTO Agreements

Twenty years ago today (April 15, 2014), the Agreement Establishing the World Trade Organization (WTO) and its Annexes were signed in Marrakesh, Morocco.  The agreements concluded the 1986-94 Uruguay Round of negotiations and were signed by 123 States.  The WTO now boasts 159 members. The WTO Agreements created a truly global regime of trade rules and a binding method of settling trade disputes.
