The WTO agreements constitute the legal basis of the international trading system used by a large part of the countries of the world. This series offers a series of fact sheets on the selected agreements. Each volume contains the text of an agreement, a statement to help the user understand the text and, in some cases, additional material. They are supposed to be an essential aid to understanding agreements, but due to the legal complexity of agreements, introductions cannot be considered legal interpretations of agreements. This edition, which has been fully revised and updated, provides an overview of the WTO Agriculture Agreement, the full legal text of the Agreement and the decisions and recommendations adopted by the Committee on Agriculture since 1 January 1995. .
