Summary
"The WTO meeting at Cancún, Mexico this September represents a critical stage in the Doha Development Round of world trade talks... This CEPS Task Force Report articulates a progressive, business-oriented agenda on trade. It suggests that there is a 'hierarchy of responsibility' among negotiating countries. Previous trade rounds have achieved substantial industrial tariff liberalisation, but insufficient progress has been made in reform of agricultural protection and in assisting the market-access ambitions of the poorest nations... The world's largest countries must now take the significant steps to free their agricultural markets and to dismantle gross distortions to world food and agricultural commodity markets. Equally, all but the very poorest developing countries should now embrace the cause of unilateral trade reform themselves, rather than adopt adversarial positions in their trade relations with the world's big four (or Quad) trade groups (US/EU/Japan/Canada)..."
