WTO Accession and Related Trade Strategies: Lessons for Ukraine

  • Klaus Günter Deutsch

Abstract

The accession of a country to the WTO has far-reaching implications for the foreign trade of the country in question and for the trade policy-making in that country. How have countries, which have recently acceded to the WTO, coped with the challenges to trade and policy-making? What are the lessons for countries such as Ukraine, which are still in the process of negotiating their entry to this international organisation? These are difficult questions. Drawing lessons from more recent experiences of countries joining the WTO is a difficult task.10 The level of development, economic history and trade policy of these countries is extremely varied, and comparisons of these countries of only limited use. Hence, the particular considerations that might bear upon the strategy of Ukraine must be discussed in more detail.11
