European Parliament: Doha will not be concluded in 2011

The International Trade Committee of the European Parliament this week passed a draft resolution that open acknowledges that the Doha Round will not be concluded in 2011. In the text, MEPs regret “that it will not be possible to reach an agreement on the outstanding issues under the Doha Development Agenda at the 8th Ministerial Conference in  Geneva on 15 to 17 December 2011”.

While a high-level panel at the European Centre for International Political Economy (ECIPE) had been optimistic about a conclusion of the Doha Round in February 2011, MEP Judith Sargentini argued in May that Doha has failed. Negotiators are now looking towards a partial implementation of the items discussed at the Doha round. The ongoing Doha discussions will also be a subject of the upcoming European Parliament Plenary session from 12-15 September.
