Beeton Returns from WTO Talks

Tuesday, 20 December 2005 17:36
International policy analyst Dan Beeton just got back from Hong Kong, where he followed the WTO talks that compromised the development round (or Doha round). The text that emerged from Hong Kong seems to be the bare minimum needed to keep negotiations from total collapse, although provisions on services and tariff cuts, among other issues, could prove damaging to developing countries if implemented. To find out more about CEPR's analysis of the talks, check out our press release: Costs of WTO 'Development Round' Could Outweigh Benefits for Developing Countries.
