In general, Positive List Approach is a selection of sectors in which Market Access and National Treatment is granted (means only do what are allowed) and Negative List Approach is an inscription of any limitations on Market Access and National Treatment (lists out all the limitation that we are not allowed to do). Specific examples for these approaches are WTO GATS and NAFTA. While WTO GATS takes on positive approach, NAFTA follows the negative one. However, there is no such thing as “pure” positive list approach. Even in GATS, once a WTO Member has chosen to include a given sector in its schedule of commitments, it has to list all restrictions that apply (just like in a negative list). The Positive List takes on “bottom-up” approach, which means commitments do not apply unless the sector and/or specific sub-sector is inscribed in the schedule while the Negative List has “top down” approach: everything liberalized unless otherwise specified.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
