Little progress in WTO’s Doha talks

Triple Crisis blogger Martin Khor published the following opinion article for the Third World Network on the extreme demands being made on developing countries in the WTO Doha talks, which are set to close this year.

Few really wanted it started, and now no one knows how to end it.  In between there’s been almost a decade of roller-coaster of the Doha negotiations at the World Trade Organisation.

Many political leaders have now proclaimed that the “Doha Round” must really be completed this year.  Otherwise it may have to be abandoned altogether, some have predicted.

But there is not a lot of chance the deal will be done now.  Although the main proposals on the table are already so imbalanced against the developing countries, the developed countries want even more from them.

    Nice post. I learn one thing more difficult on totally different blogs everyday. It would at all times be stimulating to read content from other writers and observe somewhat one thing from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content material on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link in your net blog. Thanks for sharing.
