Sharing the Gains from Trade: Reviving the Doha Round
Author(s): G30 Working Group
Today the Doha Round negotiations are stalled. This report argues strongly that the Doha Round and its Development Agenda (DDA) should be revived and energized. The report is structured as follows: It gives an overview of the potential benefits from global trade liberalization and what the WTO can do to help, followed by the current status of the international trading environment, leading into the Doha Agenda, its origins, and the specific issues which comprise it, ending with where the international trading system and trade round lie after the failure of the Cancún Ministerial, where they would lie if the DDA failed altogether, and what would remain to be done even if it were successful.
