Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the current World Trade Organization (WTO) negotiations on trade in services in the framework of Doha Development Agenda (DDA), and analyzes the legal implications that these services negotiations have for European Community (EC) in the world trading system. It can be seen that the substance and nature of services negotiations in Doha Round are quite different from those of the Uruguay Round: the latter laid the ground rules for trade in services in General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS); the former is about extending liberalization and complementing those ground rules. The chapter analyzes the consequences of the Nice Treaty reform of Article 133 EC in relation to trade in services. It explores the position of EC in the WTO generally, and in the Doha Development Agenda more specifically, as well as the trade position adopted by EC and its Member States in the new services negotiations.

Keywords: Doha Development Agenda (DDA); Doha round; European Community (EC); General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS); Nice Treaty; trade in services; World Trade Organization (WTO); world trading system
