WTO Mini-Ministerial Failes To Resolve Gaps on Industrials

The mini-Ministerial meeting held in the margins of the OECD Ministerial has failed to resolve the big gaps between WTO members on non-agricultural market access. They have agreed to an intensified process of negotiations on these differences in Geneva starting next week. There is not much media reporting on this yet, but take it from us this is what happened.

Meanwhile the EU Trade Chief Mandelson is suggesting that some WTO members are wanting the talks to fail.
