General agreement on tariffs and trade (GATT)

Established in 1944, this was both an international organisation and an agreement between countries on trade. As an organisation it no longer exists, having been superseded by the World Trade Organisation. As an agreement the last version was concluded in 1994. It now constitutes the WTO agreement governing trade in goods.
