WTO Setback More Serious Than The System Is Letting On

The feedback we are receiving suggests that the setback in the WTO agriculture negotiations last week was more serious than peoiple are admitting to. Chances of a May Ministerial meeting are now looking extremely slim. There also seems to be growing tension between Director-General Lamy and some of the negotiating group chairs. It will be very interesting to hear what Phil Goff has to say tomorrow morning.
