Six Decades of Multilateral Trade Cooperation: What Have We Learnt?

On 1 January 2008 the multilateral trading system will celebrate its sixtieth anniversary. The World Trade Report 2007 marks the occasion with a retrospective look at what we have learned from those six decades of international trade cooperation. In asking what we have learned, the report reviews a rich history of change and institutional adaptation. It attempts to identify both what lessons are to be drawn from past experience and the nature of challenges to come. The World Trade Report is useful for policymakers and for any individuals or groups interested in global trade policy.
