Developing Countries and the Doha Development Agenda of the WTO
Leveringstid: Sendes innen 21 dager
Against the background of the agenda of the present trade negotiations of the World Trade Organization and its slow progress, this enlightening book outlines the positions of the main players. Its central focus is to analyze the main effects of these positions and to find a way to complete the Doha Round so a meaningful contribution to its main objective i.e. development, is made. Key issues discussed include:
the rise of the G20 group of developing countries led by Brazil, China and India
the reasons for the failure of the WTO Ministerial Conference at Cancun in 2003
the prospects for the poorer developing countries - with emphasis on Africa in particular.
This timely and topical book enables the reader to monitor and evaluate the ongoing negotiations in the DDA, and is a natural follow-up to the bestselling 2001 Routledge title World Trade Organization Millennium Round edited by Deutsch and Speyer.
