Project #58971 - WTO: A Rseource

Assignment 2: WTO: A Resource

You report to the CEO of Ethan Allen, a home furnishing resource combining the spirit of innovation with a focus on quality and service. You have been given the responsibility of identifying the potential "developing countries" into which Ethan Allen can expand.

Henry, one of your coworkers, suggests that you should seek assistance from the World Trade Organization (WTO). He indicates that the WTO is the only global international organization dealing with the rules of trade between nations, and its goal is to help producers of goods and services, exporters, and importers conduct their business. At its heart are the WTO agreements, negotiated and signed by the bulk of the world's trading nations, and ratified in their parliaments.

Click here to visit the Web site of WTO. Navigate the website to the "What is the WTO" section and review the Chapter: Developing Countries of your textbook.Click here to view a virtual tour of the WTO.

The World Trade Organization (WTO) has a profound impact on world trade.Believe it or not, there are some that oppose the WTO. Here is a site on the other side of the fence:  http://www.globalexchange.org/resources/wto/oppose  

Key nations of the world come together to set the ground rules for trade. The regulations affect the trade of many goods, including that which you are analyzing each week. I look forward to your responses.
