Starting Sunday (23 July) itself, this will be another decisive week for the WTO's Doha negotiations, as it will become much clearer whether the G6 members will be able to implement the "new flexibilities" that their political leaders reportedly pledged to provide for their countries' positions.
The suspension of WTO negotiations is good news for consumers, farmers and fisherfolk around the world, said consumer group Food & Water Watch. The deadlock provides an opportunity for governments to take a new approach when writing the laws that govern global trade.
La sospensione dei negoziati del 'Round dello sviluppo' della Wto, a quasi cinque anni dal loro avvio a Doha nel novembre 2001, viene salutata positivamente dal Tradewatch, l'osservatorio italiano sul commercio internazionale.
Campaigners from Friends of the Earth International today welcomed the collapse of the World TradeOrganisation (WTO)'s trade negotiations. This means that there is nowtime to review and reconsider the multilateral trading system in itsentirety.
