ABSTRACT
The article focuses on globalization of economy. According to the author, globalization is happening whether we like it or not. Global trade is one of the biggest political and social developments of present times. For the benefit of most people of the world, global trade must be a multilateral, equitable enterprise. One hundred and forty seven member governments of World Trade Organization have promised to spread the benefits of globalization more fairly. The idea is to scrap tariffs that discourage imports, and subsidies that unfairly prop up exports, in ways that will benefit poor countries.
