Members eye path of ‘smaller steps’ as way out of Doha impasse

Ambassadors from WTO member governments confirmed on 21 October 2011 that the upcoming ministerial conference should set a deadlock-breaking path for the Doha Round perhaps by starting on issues where an early agreement might be possible.

Speaking at an informal meeting of the Trade Negotiations Committee (TNC), which oversees talks in all Doha Round subjects, they agreed with the committee’s chairman, WTO Director-General Pascal Lamy, that this should be one of the messages of the 15–17 December Ministerial Conference in Geneva.

They also agreed that the Doha Round is at an impasse, that there is little chance of the membership concluding the negotiations in all subjects in the near future as they had originally intended, but that they do not want to give up the objectives of the negotiations, which were launched in Doha in 2001.
