World Trade Organisation: Doha
World Trade Organisation: Doha. Where does the World Trade Organization stand, one year into the Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations? The new round, launched in Qatar in November 2001, will include negotiations on reducing barriers to trade in industrial goods, farm products, and services and taking the WTO into new territory to cover investment-, competition-, and environment-related trade policies. The new round presents great opportunities, but it also creates new risks for world trade. "Whither the WTO? A Progress Report on the Doha Round" by Razeen Sally is published by the Cato Institute.
