Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Max Planck Commentaries on World Trade Law contains the Table of Contents, the Preface to the series, the Preface to the book, the user's guide, the list of contributors, the table of abbreviations and acronyms, and a general bibliography. While trade in goods had been regulated by the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) 1947, states have long hesitated to address the field of services with a comprehensive regulatory approach. In spite of these difficulties, in the 1990s the Uruguay Round not only achieved to establish the World Trade Organization (WTO) as an international organization but also worked out the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS). The book contains all articles of the GATS, the Annexes and Protocols to the GATS as well as the Understanding on Commitments in Financial Services and the Reference Paper on Basic Telecommunications.

Keywords: basic telecommunications; financial services; General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade; General Agreement on Trade in Services; World Trade Organization (WTO)
