Doha Talks Could Continue Into 2012

Wed, 06 Oct 2010 16:49:43 CDT

U.S. Chief Ag Trade Negotiator Isi Siddiqui says there is no shortcut to a Doha success. He said deadlines and mandated formal processes won’t do it - and repeated the U.S. demand for major developing countries like China, India and Brazil to make better offers to open their markets. Indicating that the Doha negotiations might stretch into 2012 - Siddiqui pointed out that work has already started on the next U.S. farm bill. If a Doha deal is not reached between now and the autumn of 2012 - he said the current Uruguay Round commitments will serve as the guidepost.

The Doha Round started nearly nine years ago. Countries have not been able to agree on formulas for cutting farm subsidies in rich countries in exchange for cuts in ag tariffs in developed and developing countries. While Siddiqui said negotiators have made meaningful progress in the negotiations over the past six months - he added that moving successfully from process to substance is the challenge in the months ahead.
