Regional trade agreements and its impact on the multilateral trading system: eroding the preferences of developing countries?

by Abebe, Opeyemi Temitope

Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of this paper was to examine the impact that the proliferation of regional trade agreements have had on the Multilateral Trading System and whether by allowing regional trade agreements under the World Trade Organization rules, the members of the World Trade Organization have not unwittingly weakened the multilateral trading system. It also examined the effect the proliferation of regional trade agreements have had on the special and deferential treatment for developing countries within the system.
