An analytical index containing comments on the drafting, interpretation and application of the articles of the Agreement has been prepared and published by the Secretariat. A second publication completes the text of the agreements concluded in the framework of the Tokyo Round of multilateral trade negotiations (1973-1979). As for the geopolitical point, what some call the great power (although this is an oversimplification), most of the WTO`s problems date back to our current approach to world affairs. Differences between the two major trading nations have not been one of the WTO`s main problems, although they are undoubtedly becoming a stronger feature of the global trading landscape and influencing the WTO more in the future. At present, the WTO will not affect geopolitics, but it will probably reflect it. Conflicts between nations (2) should not be an excuse for inaction on issues that the WTO can resolve more clearly. For negotiations, this can take the form of a set of agreed responses to the current health and economic crisis caused by the pandemic. In addition, there are agreements resulting from ongoing negotiations, including fisheries subsidies and e-commerce. Of these, the fisheries negotiations have an agreed deadline until December 2020. However, despite the fact that the success of this 20-year undertaking will be a great success, it will not be enough to change the narrative and the reality of the WTO`s relevance in the negotiations on fisheries subsidies.
