IBON Primer on the WTO ‘Bali Package’


2013|62 pages

The package of proposals being negotiated towards and post-Bali is imbalanced against developing countries. If signed, the proposed deals will widen and deepen the scope of unbridled trade liberalization that has already distorted and eroded the economies of developing countries in favor of the needs of developed countries. The proposed deals will further undermine the right to development of developing countries and marginalized sectors by compelling their governments to change their laws and policies in accordance with the imperatives of wider access by foreign corporations to local markets and resources, export dumping, removal of state-owned enterprises, and privatization of social services.
