Topic Introduction:

The World Trade Organization (WTO) is an intergovernmental organization that regulates and facilitates international trade between nations. Governments use the organization to establish, revise, and enforce the rules that govern international trade. It officially commenced operations on 1 January 1995, pursuant to the 1994 Marrakesh Agreement, thus replacing the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) that had been established in 1948. WTO is the world's largest international economic organization, with 164 member states representing over 98% of global trade and global GDP.

To know how WTO facilities trade across the world we can understand with the example of a ‘I, Pencil’ theory given by Leonard E. Read. It shows how the formation of a pencil helps in overall economic growth with the creation of various employment opportunities like transportation, restaurant, workers in factories even it helps in increasing import export between the countries because the wood that is used for the production of pencil is Cedar and it is mostly imported by India from USA.
