The article analyzes the development of international trade-environment linkage in the World Trade Organization (WTO) Ministerial Conferences in the context of the post-Uruguay Round. The developments in the trade-environment linkage have failed to address the interests and concerns of developing countries. This would affect the economic growth of these countries. The aim of the developed countries to develop this type of linkage is just to fulfil their commercial interests. There is a need for the WTO to take account of the concerns of the developing countries and to integrate sustainable development as part of future trade negotiations.
