About this book

This volume examines the main factors for developing country trade performance in the last thirty years, their own trade policies, market access issues they face, and their increasingly more effective participation in the WTO and the Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations.

Reviews

"The participation of developing countries in global trade has increased dramatically since the 1980s. This excellent book provides a highly readable analysis of the drivers of this change, the disparities in outcomes across countries and the implications for the multilateral trading system. It should be required reading for all tarde and development practitioners." - Bernard Hoekman, Director, Global Economics, European University Institute, Florence, Italy

"Congratulations- Emerging Powers in the WTO will make a great contribution to the subject and wonderful material for both students and practitioners.I am enjoying and learning a lot from it. - K.Y. Amoako, President, African Center for Economic Transfromation, Accra, Ghana

"The global trading landscape has changed dramatically since the Uruguay Round. Michalopoulos draws upon his decades of experience at the intersection of trade and development to analyse these changes in technology, geopolitics and commercial practices, and provides the path for the trading system's response to these realities. A must read for anyone who is serious about understanding today's global economy." -Peter Allgeier, President,Coalition of Services Industries, former US Ambassador to the WTO

"Developing countries have long perceived themselves as disadvantaged in the world trading system. But much has changed in recent years. This is an excellent overview, from the developing countries viewpoint, of their role in the WTO and a fine reference for those interested in a comprehensive update of their participation in world trade." - Anne Krueger, Senior Fellow, Stanford Center for International Development and Senior Research Professor, SAIS, Johns Hopkins University
