Tariffs were a major obstacle to international trade. That is why GATT has encouraged negotiations on reducing Hig4 tariffs and participating countries have agreed to reduce tariffs on thousands of industrial products. The reduction of the tariff was done on a reciprocal and mutually beneficial basis. Article 11 of the GATT stipulated that all concessions granted by the contracting parties should be included in a concession schedule. Once a concession was included in the concession schedule, it could only be withdrawn in certain circumstances. The IMF strives to promote international economic cooperation, international trade, employment and exchange rate stability. In addition, countries could restrict trade for national security reasons. These include patent protection, copyright and public morality. The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) was the first multilateral free trade agreement. It first came into force in 1948 as an agreement between 23 countries and remained in force until 1995, when it joined 128 countries. It has been replaced by the World Trade Organization.
The agreement opened the door to open trade by ending tariffs on various goods and services and implementing equality between Canada, America and Mexico. NAFTA has allowed tariff exemption for agricultural products such as eggs, maize and meat. This has allowed companies to act freely and import and export different products at the North American level. The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) was created after the Second World War to support the global economic recovery through the reconstruction and liberalization of world trade. The main objective of the GATT was to remove barriers to international trade by reducing tariffs, quotas and subsidies. Since then, it has been replaced by the World Trade Organization (WTO). However, this part of the result was not authorized by Congress and the U.S. selling price was not abolished until Congress passed the results of the Tokyo Round.
The results in agriculture as a whole have been poor. The most notable achievement was the agreement on a Memorandum of Understanding on the basic elements for the arrangement of global subsidies, which was eventually incorporated into a new international agreement on cereals. The IMF is committed to promoting global growth and economic stability. It advises and finances members in economic difficulty and also works with developing countries to help them achieve macroeconomic stability and reduce poverty. This is because private international capital markets operate imperfectly and that many countries have limited access to financial markets.
