First published in 1998, this volume analyses Brazil’s strategy in the Uruguay Round, focusing on the issue of services. Three different moments were chosen for analysis. The first was during discussions before the launch of the Uruguay Round. During this period, Brazil led the Less Developed Countries (LDCs), in obstructing the inclusion of services on the agenda. The Second was during the launch of the Uruguay Round, when Brazil persisted with this policy. This second period is referred to as the initial position of Brazil in the Uruguay Round. The third was Montreal, in 1988, when Brazil supported the principles which guided an agreement on services. After this turning point, Brazil’s position in the Round was increasingly supportive of an agreement, not only in services, but in all fields.
