Beyond WTO Program
  "     The Beyond WTO Program was developed in response to a request from the Government of Vietnam for donor support to help with managing economic integration and the transition to a market economy in the period after Vietnam’s accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO). The first preparatory phase of the program, which was launched in January 2007 shortly after Vietnam formally acceded to the WTO, was designed to help the Government to develop a comprehensive national action plan (GAP) and robust institutional arrangements for coordinating integration and related reforms, and to test a nationally managed multi-donor trust fund (MDTF) to provide pooled donor support for implementation of the plan. This document presents the proposed design for the second phase, aimed at supporting actions under the GAP.

ABSTRACT

While the economic achievements under the impacts of WTO integration are easily accepted both theoretically and practically, the social impacts, especially the issues concerning to labour and social appear not to be homogenous across countries.

The purpose of this paper is to assess the impacts of WTO implementation to the labour, employment, and other emerged social issues, and on the basis of assessment. The analysis will be qualitative and quantitative one.

 Absolute Advantage

Adam Smith first developed the idea that international trade could be mutually

beneficial by allowing countries to exploit the opportunities of an

international division of labor. Any country may enjoy an absolute advantage

over others in the production of specific goods, and would benefit from trading

those goods in exchange for others in which its partner has an advantage. For

example, Great Britain has an absolute advantage in the production of cloth, and

Portugal enjoys a similar advantage in the production of wine; both countries’

welfare will improve by trading these commodities. This concept yields a narrow

view of the gains from trade, insofar as it fails to capture the benefits that

countries might enjoy even when one partner has an absolute advantage in the

production of all traded commodities. It is thus to be distinguished from the

more sophisticated notion of comparative advantage. (Note that while Smith used

the phrase “absolute advantage” at various points in The Wealth of Nations,

especially in his discussion of colonies, he did not mean it in the sense

employed here. The qualifier “absolute” was added by later commentators to

distinguish Smith’s conception from that of Ricardo.)
