Goff Sees Prospect For Further Delays In WTO Ministerial Meeting

In his speech today to the Wellington Regional Chamber of Commerce Phil Goff became the first Trade Minister to raise the prospect of a further delay occurring in the convening of the next WTO Ministerial meeting. He talks about the meeting may not happening until June. This is in direct conflict with attempts by WTO Director-General Lamy to talk up chances of a meeting in May (could this be a sign of the continuing friction between Lamy and Falconer??).
