World Trade Organization : Challenges And Prospects
World Trade Organisation is an international organisation dealing with the global rules of trade between nations. Its main function is to ensure that trade flows as smoothly, predictably, and freely as possible. The World Trade Organization works to facilitate international trade. Its member countries negotiate and sign agreements hammered out in the WTO forum. The WTO administers the agreements, handles trade disputes, monitors national trade policies, provides technical assistance and training for developing countries and cooperates with other international organizations.
