|The WTO Ministerial Conference: Was it Worth a Try?|
27 January 2010, Brussels
The Doha Round, launched in 2001 in the wake of the attacks on the World Trade Center, has seen its agenda shrink and its conclusion postponed at each ministerial conference. Are the negotiations moving towards a workable deal or are they heading for an impasse? Will the crisis complicate the conclusion of the Doha Round?
To answer these questions, the Madariaga - College of Europe Foundation has invited Esperanza Durán, Executive Director of AITIC (Agency for International Trade Information and Cooperation), and Denis Redonnet, Head of Unit for WTO and OECD cooperation at DG Trade, European Commission.
