Abstract

The paper discusses in particular the role of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) regarding Regional Trade Agreements (RTA) and Regional Integration Agreements (RIA) as well as the benefits and limitations of these agreements. Examples are given which outline on the one hand the successful developements which have taken place, but also points on failures in setting up or benefitting from those agreements. It stresses also the need for unified action at the WTO itself.
