5th Round (Dillon Round, 1960-61)

5th Round: Dillon Round: the fifth round of multilateral trade negotiations, held in Geneva from 1960-61. It was named after Douglas C Dillon, the then United States Under-Secretary for State.

Much of the Dillon Round was concerned with tariff renegotiations resulting from the establishment of the European Economic Community and its common external tariff, but there were the last of the old-style tariff negotiating conferences. Its results were modest. About 4,400 tariff concessions were exchanged, compared to about 45,000 during the Geneva Tariff Conference, 1947.
