The Impact of Agriculture-Related WTO Agreements on The Domestic Legal Framework inThe Kingdom of Nepal
PDF File Size: 539 KB | Download   
Under the term of its accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO),Nepal committed to review existing law and regulations to ensure compliance with several technical Agreements affecting trade in agriculture goods,including the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT),the Agreement on Agriculture (AoA),the Agreement on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measure(SPS Agreement),the Agreement on Technical Barrier to trade (TBT Agreement) and the Agreement on Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPs). Many of the legislative changes and amendments made prior to accession as well as the commitments mad during accession to the WTO have a direct impact on Nepal's agriculture trade policies. Since the early 1990's Nepal has been committed to market-based reforms as a means to increase agriculture productivity and economic growth. However, Nepal has yet to obtain the benefits of sustainable growth in the agricultural sector from increased market access under the WTO regime. In addition, Nepal faces considerable challenges to full implementation of the WTO trade agreements despite the concessions and the transition periods that it has been granted as a Least Developed Country Member.
