The Kennedy Round took place from 1962 to 1967. $40 billion in tariffs have been eliminated or reduced. R. Rajesh Babu, appeal under the WTO legal system (K4610 . B33 2012) provides a critical analysis of the WTO`s remedial measures for developing countries. The working hypothesis for collective bargaining was a linear reduction of 50% in tariffs, with the smallest number of exceptions. A long-term argument has developed about the trade effects of a uniform linear reduction on the dispersed rates (low tariffs and high rates quite far away) of the United States compared to the much more concentrated rates of the EEC, which also tended to be under the ownership of U.S. tariffs. The Uruguay Round Agricultural Agreement remains the most important agreement in the history of trade negotiations for the liberalisation of agricultural trade. The aim of the agreement was to improve market access for agricultural products, reduce national aid to agriculture in the form of price-distorting subsidies and quotas, eliminate agricultural export subsidies over time and harmonize health and plant health measures among Member States as much as possible. This series of meetings and reduced rates would continue, allowing for new GATT provisions in the process. The average tariff rate rose from about 22% when the GATT was first signed in Geneva in 1947, to about 5% until the end of the 1993 Uruguay Cycle, which also negotiated the creation of the WTO.

THE GATT and its successor, the WTO, have succeeded in reducing tariffs. Average tariff levels for large GATT participants were about 22% in 1947, but were 5% after the Uruguay Round of 1999. [4] Experts attribute some of these tariff changes to the GATT and the WTO. [5] [6] [7] At the beginning of the GATT, the focus was on reducing tariffs and import duties in order to promote trade and reduce protectionism. This target has been largely achieved for industrial production over many business cycles. Tariffs on trade in industrial products were reduced from about 40% to less than 5% in the period from the creation of the GATT to the current implementation of the Uruguay Round. This process of reducing tariffs is at an early stage for agricultural and food products. Article XX of the GATT (also known as the hat clause) contains a list of ten authorized exceptions to the free trade principles set out in the agreement.
