The global well-posedness of rough solutions to the Cauchy problem for the Davey-Stewartson system is obtained. It reads that if the initial data is in with s > 2/5, then there exists a global solution in time, and the norm of the solution obeys polynomial-in-time bounds. The new ingredient in this paper is an interaction Morawetz estimate, which generates a new space-time estimate for nonlinear equation with the relatively general defocusing power nonlinearity.
