The Jamaican Experience with the Movement of Natural Persons in the Provision of Services

Enos Brown
 Chief Information Officer, HEART Trust/NTA, Jamaica
Joint WTO-World Bank Symposium on 
Movement of Natural Persons (Mode 4) Under

Geneva, 11-12 April 2002

In 2001, the Council for Trade in Services tasked the Secretariat with organizing a Symposium on “Movement of natural persons (mode 4) under the GATS” and agreed that the event would be planned and sponsored jointly with the World Bank. The symposium was intended to provide a platform for information exchange and discussion on different aspects of mode 4 trade. It brought together government officials, representatives of international organizations, academic researchers and private sector experts. Presentations addressed GATS provisions and commitments in relation to mode 4, the economic implications of further liberalization of the movement of natural persons and the challenges and opportunities it presents. Current regimes for the temporary entry of services providers in selected countries were also outlined. The protagonists of mode 4 trade, in home and host countries, and government officials responsible for regulating the temporary entry of persons presented their views. A panel discussion with trade negotiators closed the event. The Symposium was held on 11 and 12 April 2002.
