Analytical Note, July 2007
Comments to the Draft Modalities for WTO NAMA Negotiations dated 17 July 2007.
This note contains preliminary comments on the Draft NAMA Modalities submitted by the Chairman of the WTO Negotiating Group on Market Access (Job (07)/126). While the text will need to be discussed, amended and, if agreed, adopted at a later stage, it constitutes a capital document as it will constitute the yardstick against which positions will be assessed. This note reviews each of the sections of the modalities and comments on their general implications for developing countries.
