From the Paper:

"As far as the WTO is concerned, it is another major international organization that governs the international trade. It was created in 1995, and can be regarded as one of the outcomes of the Uruguay round of multilateral trade talks. The Uruguay round which was full of complex negotiations was concluded in 1994, and can be regarded as a landmark in the history of trading systems. The rules of the trade policy games have also been established by the WTO for its members, and it includes the developing countries as well . At the time of writing such rules, the number of members stood at 144, and still there are more than 50 developing countries that are yet to join its membership."
