Mike Moore's speeches
Renato Ruggiero's speeches,
To answer these
and other questions on this vast initiative in global economic integration and
liberalization, the WTO Secretariat has published a 400-page history of the negotiations
RESHAPING THE WORLD TRADING SYSTEM - A History of the Uruguay Round(1).
The author, John
Croome, was a senior official in the GATT Secretariat for 23 years, until 1993, having
previously worked for EFTA, the World Bank and The Guardian newspaper. Avoiding technical
'GATTspeak', he lifts the curtain on the drama behind the negotiations, including the
conclusion of the Final Act. Through wide access to the many hundreds of official and
unofficial documents, internal memoranda, press reports, private meeting notes and, of
course, personal memory the story is told in a frank, lively and non-technical narrative.
