Government Procurement Agreement

image of Government Procurement Agreement

In October 2014, negotiations were concluded on the accessions of Montenegro and New Zealand to the Government Procurement Agreement (GPA), giving them access to a US$ 1.7 trillion market. Important developments occurred with respect to the GPA accessions of several other WTO members, including China, Moldova and Ukraine. The revised Agreement, adopted by the GPA parties in 2012, came into force. A new, automated market access information tool, the e-GPA system, was publicly released. The WTO Secretariat undertook high-level technical assistance and deepened its collaborative partnerships with other international organizations.
