WTO : Ministerial Meeting Set

Pascal Lamy has upped the stakes and has called a Ministerial meeting for 21 July. There are still huge differences but Lamy is seeking to up the stakes and try and force an acceleration of the work on outstanding differences so that texts are in a state for Ministers to consider. We wish Lamy good luck, but we are still worried about the gaps that exist between many of the key players on so many issues. And after 1 July we have the French in the EU Presidency.
