There is a good chance that the Uruguay Round will be successfully concluded by the end of 1993. Negotiations on agriculture have for a long time been the centerpiece and the stumbling block of the whole Round. With the breakthrough achieved by the Blair House agreement, the prospects are good for the process of bringing agriculture fully into the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). This could herald the end of a period during which agriculture and its trade were not considered suitable for GATT rules and disciplines applicable to other goods.
