dc.description.abstractThis paper discusses the benefits as well as the adjustment problems resultingfrom the proposed accession of the member countries of the Commonwealth ofIndependent States (CIS) to the World Trade Organisation (WTO). In the areaof trade-related policies, the CIS countries will have to make strategic decisionson policy objectives that have so far been avoided. Necessary adjustments tospecific policy instruments will be limited and mostly technical in nature.Similarly, current plans for regional integration among CIS countries arefundamentally in compliance with WTO rules. However, negotiating strategiesshould be carefully coordinated among CIS countries that are in a de facto,though not necessarily a de jure customs union. Systemic transformation,especially the imposition and further strengthening of financial discipline onformerly socialist enterprises through privatization and elimination of subsidies,will need to be carried forward vigorously. Benefits of WTO accession includethe consolidation of recent improvements in market access and, above all else,greater credibility for market-oriented reform policies through the internationalcommitments to be entered into by CIS governments with respect to futuretrade-related policies.-
