WTO Watch: Developing Countries Seem Happy On Agriculture But Negative on Manufactures at WTO
Reports are consistently suggesting contentment from key developing countries on Crawford Falconer's agriculture text, but some developing countries seem less happy about the text on non-agricultural market access. This is a worry as the US and the EU think that too many concessions have been made to developing countries in the revised text in this area. Encouragingly other reports suggest that India is happy with these two texts that are on the table as a "basis for further negotiations". No comment was made on services.
