(p.281) III Conclusions
The Trade Policy Review Mechanism

Mathias Kende

Oxford University Press

The Conclusion to this book confirms that the TPRM has functioned relatively well but that its performance could and should be improved in order for it to remain politically relevant. In this regard, this chapter provides some recommendations with regard to the objectives, the structure, and the respective participants of the TPRM. Each of these recommendations are tested against the background of the last (sixth) appraisal of the system (2016) whose results precede the upcoming Eleventh WTO Ministerial Conference in Buenos Aires (December 2017). The book concludes that some of the results of the last appraisal are a step into the good direction but that the WTO Membership will need to be more ambitious in order to keep the system relevant.

Keywords:   WTO, Eleventh WTO Ministerial Conference, MC11, sixth appraisal of the TPRM, peer review
