GATT bilateral negotiating material by Contracting Party
During the GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade) years, eight rounds of tariff negotiations were held between 1947 and 1994: Geneva (1947), Annecy (1949), Torquay (1950-51), Geneva (1956), Geneva (1960-61) - also known as the Dillon Round, the Kennedy Round (1964-67), the Tokyo Round (1973-79) and the Uruguay Round (1986-94).
In the first four rounds, negotiations were conducted on a product-by-product basis (known as the "request/offer" approach), whereby GATT contracting parties exchanged lists of requests and offers on products of interest to them in order to reach agreement on tariff concessions. The bilateral records of these first four rounds are presented below, derestricted by the members concerned. All related documents of a particular bilateral negotiation (request, offer, agreements) have been compiled into a single PDF document. Documents can be browsed by round of negotiations or contracting parties.
