Trade in services

The Council for Trade in Services focused much of its work on electronic commerce, with WTO members exchanging information and considering a proposal for a seminar on the services aspect of this topic. A seminar was also proposed to discuss barriers to the cross-border movement of persons to provide services (mode 4). The Council continued addressing the services waiver, which allows for more favourable treatment to be given to least-developed countries.
