No 2022:3, PIDE-Working Papers from Pakistan Institute of Development Economics

Abstract: Opening international trade has become a norm in policy design worldwide to promote long-term economic growth. Until 2000, multilateral trade negotiation was governed by the General Agreement of Tariff and Trade (GATTs) and its successors, the World Trade Organisation (WTO), which was the core mechanism in reducing crossborder trade barriers, especially those in terms of tariffs. Since the new millennium, the mechanism to open up international trade has changed.
