Experts believe that Islamic Republic of Iran’s joining to World Trade Organization (WTO) has tremendous benefits for the country such as improving the domestic economy as well as boosting international ties and partnerships. Iran has filed the application to join the WTO in 1996 but ever since it’s efforts have been marred by a variety of reasons, both interior country problems and exterior barrier such as the opposition of the USA to Iran’s membership. This research aims to explore the efforts made by Iran during recent decades in regard to the implementation of General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) as well as the WTO accession. Furthermore, it has been concluded that while Iran made significant steps forward to alter its actions and Grand Strategy of National Development in order to further reconcile with the WTO criterion, there are still irreconcilable differences between Iran’s domestic economy and the standards required by the World Trade Organization and global economic sphere. This article seeks to study the plans and actions of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the direction of national development and accession to the World Trade Organization and It has been attempted to answer the question of whether Iran's national development plans and strategies have prepared the country for accession to the World Trade Organization.
