World Bank Group, DC / Ban Urges Greater Effort To Rescue Doha Trade Round

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon called on Monday for redoubling efforts to rescue five-year-old world trade talks and warned that failure could harm poor nations as well as multilateral free trade. …  ‘Everyone must redouble their efforts in the coming months to ensure success,’ Ban told the Seventh International Forum on Democracy, Development and Free Trade in the Qatari capital, Doha. … Ban said the positive relationship between free trade and development was well-established. ‘With the ease of travel, shipping, and communications that our modern world provides, the benefits of trade have become more evident than ever. That is why it is so essential that there be a successful conclusion to the Doha round of trade talks,’ he told the meeting.” [Reuters/Factiva]   


Xinhua reports Ban said that “…The global trading regime needed to create opportunities for the poorest countries instead of leaving them at a disadvantage noting that if this round of trade talks failed, serious damage would be done to those who can least afford it. …” [Xinhua (China)/Factiva]
