Doha round: setting a deadline
From VoxEU.org comes this interview in which Peter Sutherland talks to Viv Davies about the recently published interim report on ‘The Doha Round: Setting a deadline, defining a final deal’. Sutherland explains why Doha has stalled and presents the case for its immediate completion. He maintains it is crucial that governments now commit to concluding Doha by the end of 2011 or else the round is doomed and all that has been achieved will be lost, with disastrous consequences for world trade. There is also a transcript of the interview available.
