One of GATT`s most important achievements has been indiscriminate trade. Any GATT signatory should be treated like any other, known to be the nation`s most privileged principle and entered into the WTO. The practical result was that, once a country had negotiated a tariff reduction with some other countries (usually its major trading partners), this reduction would automatically apply to all GATT signatories. There were leakage clauses allowing countries to negotiate exemptions if their domestic producers were particularly harmed by tariff reductions. In 1948, THE GATT was created to regulate world trade. It was created as a means of stimulating economic recovery after the Second World War by reducing or eliminating tariffs, quotas and subsidies. Three of them. With respect to an existing internal tax that is inconsistent with the provisions of paragraph 2, but expressly approved under a trade agreement in force on 10 April 1947, in which the import tax on the taxed product is linked to the increase, the contracting party applying the tax is free to defer to that tax the application of the provisions of paragraph 2 until it can be exempt from the obligations of that tax. Trade agreements to allow the increase of this tax to the extent necessary to compensate for the elimination of the protective element of the tax.

However, this part of the result was not authorized by Congress and the U.S. selling price was not abolished until Congress passed the results of the Tokyo Round. The results in agriculture as a whole have been poor. The most notable achievement was the agreement on a Memorandum of Understanding on the basic elements for the arrangement of global subsidies, which was eventually incorporated into a new international agreement on cereals. 5.
