The most favored nation trading principle is one of the pillars of the world trade organization (WTO) and GATT 1994. The principle is also enshrined under different international law provisions such as under article 4 of the TRIPS Agreement. The researcher was intended to critically examine the efficacy and efficiency of its application as it regards Developed countries viz-a-viz Developing countries. This dissertation is about analyzing the law relating to the most favored nation trading principle and its relevancies like National Treatment. This study covers Uganda, USA and other jurisdictions. The findings relating to this study is that, as much as the law relating to the most favored nation trading principle is very good as regards treating all WTO members equally, whether small, medium or big nation, all of them require equal treatment, implementation of such laws is not properly administered and this deficiency needs to be solved. Therefore, there is a need to focus on the proper implementation of the law related to the principle.
