Summary/Abstract: The European Union in the Doha round of trade negotiations acts as the legal successor of the European Community. In the light of the Treaty of Lisbon, the EU as an international organization has gained a significantly stronger position in the WTO. This conclusion is based on the evidence of extending the scope of Common Trade Policy on foreign direct investment (FDI), giving the Union the right to conclude international agreements with third countries and international organizations, as well as a clear demarcation of exclusive powers of the EU to conclude international agreements. There is no doubt that the priorities of the EU will be directed towards improving its position in global trade in goods and services and maintaining close cooperation with economic powers – the U.S., Japan and China. These objectives are, however, difficult obtain due to the global financial crisis, the lack of consensus with developing countries in terms of agriculture and the increasingly aggressive U.S. agricultural policy. Difficulties in resolving the above -mentioned problems make the completion of the Doha Round in the coming years a huge challenge for the international community.
