WTI Musings on the WTO’s Nairobi Ministerial meeting

Trade ministers from around the world are gathered in Nairobi, Kenya, to work on an agreement to liberalise global trade and resolve the Doha round of trade talks.

The World Trade Organization’s 10th ministerial meeting, which runs from 15 to 18 December, follows more than a decade of stalled trade negotiations, beginning in the Qatari capital in 2001 and arriving at an impasse of multilateral trade that many believe could spell the end of the Doha agenda – and possibly the WTO itself.
 
As talks in Nairobi got underway, the World Economic Forum asked Pierre Sauvé of the WTI, and three other world trade experts, why this latest round of discussions is so important, and what we can expect to come from them.
