RUSSIA’S ACCESSION TO THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION: COMMITMENTS, PROCESSES, AND PROSPECTS
R. Connolly, Ph. Hanson RUSSIA’S ACCESSION TO THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION: COMMITMENTS, PROCESSES, AND PROSPECTS // The Russian Academic Journal, Vol. 23, Issue 1, 2014, pp. 0-0
Аннотация Two noted British economists survey a range of issues linked to Russia’s forthcoming accession to the World Trade
Organization (WTO) and its implications for the Russian economy. They describe the far-reaching commitments Russia has undertaken
in the realm of tariffs, non-tariff barriers, and openness to inward investment, identifying factors that tend both to support and challenge
realization of these commitments. They follow with a brief historical account of the reasons why the accession process for Russia was
so protracted and an assessment of the likely medium- and long-term economic impacts of accession for the country as well as for its
particular regions and social groups. The arguments suggest that the likely direct impacts of accession will overall be modest (at least
over the near- to medium- term), and focused in spheres in which a foreign presence may enhance the productivity of Russian firms in
the domestic market (e.g., business services). Potentially, more substantial indirect benefits will largely depend on the scale and
seriousness of domestic reform policies launched in support of WTO compliance (i.e., effects of accession on Russia’s political
economy).
