Telecommunications-Related Services: Market Access, Deeper Integration and the WTO


  • Braga, Carlos A P

  • Hoekman, Bernhard


Liberalization and regulatory reform of telecom markets has emerged as a high profile policy issue. This paper analyzes how the multilateral system under the World Trade Organization can help developing countries in promoting their own information infrastructures. We focus on a specific ?regime? issue that has attracted increasing attention in recent years: the extent to which the WTO should pursue a ?deeper integration? agenda, using telecommunications and activities that rely heavily on telecommunications as a specific case.
