Information Technology Agreement

On 16 December 2015, at the Tenth Ministerial Conference in Nairobi, participants in negotiations to expand the Information Technology Agreement (ITA) concluded a landmark deal to liberalize trade in an additional 201 high-tech products, whose annual value is estimated at US$ 1.3 trillion, accounting for nearly 10 per cent of world trade in goods. It is the first major tariff-cutting deal at the WTO since 1996.
