WTO/ESCAP Advanced Regional Seminar on the GATS and Services Negotiations

4 May 2010 to 7 May 2010
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This seminar offers advanced training on the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) and developments in the ongoing services negotiations under the Doha Development Agenda. The seminar is intended to respond to particular sector- and policy-related interests expressed by participants. It may thus be used as an opportunity to discuss areas/sectors that are not fully reflected in the current classification system (e.g., environment- or energy-related services), issues that have arisen in recent studies on the GATS (e.g., the status of investment treaties under the Agreement) and/or the implications of GATS-related dispute rulings.
