Uruguay Round

Uruguay Round

Round of negotiation in the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade that lasted from 1986 until 1993. It focused primarily on politically sensitive areas where tariffs had remained high, such as agriculture, the service sector, intellectual property, and the audio-visual field. It also sought to improve the GATT dispute settlement process.

The "Super 301" Clause had a negative effect on negotiations. One of the most significant results was the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy in both 1988 and 1992.

In 2006 a similar round of negotiation (the Doha Round) ended without result.
