Why world leaders must resist the false promise of another Doha delay

This eBook was published one day before the 29 April 2011 meeting of the Trade Negotiations Committee in Geneva. If the Doha deadlock is to be broken this year, US and Chinese leaders must find more room for compromise by loosening their domestic political constrains. To do this, they must challenge the premise on which the deadlock is based – the view held by special interest groups that Doha is mostly about tariff cuts. These narrow special interests should not be allowed to jeopardise the world trading system and the benefits Doha would bring to all nations. This is critical; the eBook argues that if Doha fails this year, it can't be done before 2020
