Fifth Regulatory Colloquium

Trade Agreements on Telecommunications: Regulatory Implications
(5th Report - December 1995)

Briefing Report

This Briefing Report was prepared for the fifth ITU Regulatory Colloquium, held at ITU Headquarters in Geneva on 6-8 December 1995.

The Report concerns the far-reaching implications for the "telecommunications community" (regulators, operators and users) of the Marrakesh Agreement of 1994 that completed the Uruguay Round of international trade negotiations and established the World Trade Organisation (WTO). It also explains in detail the continued negotiations that took place through the Negotiating Group on Basic Telecommunications (NGBT).

The report was prepared by Michael Tyler, Professor William Letwin and Russell Pipe, and funded by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation. The views expressed are those of the authors.

Chairman’s Report

The results of the Fifth Colloquium are reflected in the following Chairman’s Report by Mr. Leive.

This publication also includes the executive summary of the Briefing Report prepared by a distinguished independent expert, Michael Tyler, which was presented to the Colloquium in draft form to serve as a basis of the discussions.
