International Trade Organization

Conceived as a complement to the Bretton Woods institutions -- the IMF and World Bank -- the ITO was to provide international discipline in the uses of trade policies. The Havana Charter for the ITO was not approved by the United States Congress, however, and the initiative died, replaced by the continuing and growing importance of the GATT.
