An International Workshop
Seattle, April 28-29, 2001
This workshop, which is a sequel to a previous one held in Seattle, 1999, allows economists to share their views on the current issues of world trade, especially those related directly or indirectly to the World Trade Organization, and talk about what research work has been done and what can be done later.
The workshop will have several sessions with presentation and discussion of ideas. Each session, which will focus on one or two main issues, will have about three presentations, each approximately 15 minutes long, to be followed by discussion. Instead of concentrating on one paper, each presentation will cover at least several papers written by the presenter and/or other people, and should be written and ready for circulation before the workshop. A reading and reference list of related papers will be most helpful.
People interested in making a presentation at the workshop are invited to submit an outline by March 10, 2001 to Kar-yiu Wong, Department of Economics, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195-3330, U. S. A. Submission by e-mail <firstname.lastname@example.org> or fax (1-206-685-7477) is most welcome. Please include in your submission your name, affiliation and academic rank, phone and fax numbers, postal and e-mail addresses. Multiple submissions in more than one area are acceptable.

environment; world trade and economic development; world trade and labor
standard; trade and economic growth and technological improvement; trade
related intellectual property rights; trade in services and trade in
