World Trade Organisation
The World Trade Organisation seeks to allow trade, including online gambling, to flow as freely as possible, assuring a prosperous and peaceful economic world.
The World Trade Organization (WTO) is based on the WTO agreements - international ground-rules that guide commerce between nations. All WTO agreements are signed by WTO member-states and are then made into law in the country's parliament.
These agreements work to guarantee trading rights, and aim to help producers of goods and services to conduct their businesses as freely as possible, encouraging good economic relations between countries and improving the general welfare of member-states.
The WTO also deals with the issue of online gambling, and is currently opposing US legislation that bans online gambling on American soil (UIGEA).
Founded in 1995 and with its HQ residing in Geneva, the WTO is the direct descendant of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and currently has over 150 member states, including India, China and the US.
