August 2006 management briefing
Monday 24th July signalled the suspension of the WTO global trade talks. The International Chamber of Commerce said in a statement late on Tuesday that it was “extremely disappointed” by the collapse of the talks which came after countries failed to overcome differences on reforming global farm trade. Our man with his finger on the EU pulse, Keith Nuthall, has just completed his analysis of the saga so far. just-food’s August management briefing discusses the modalities deal and what’s in the draft, whether or not there may actually be a deal now, and it discusses follow-up negotiations, agriculture amendments and refining modalities. For bang up-to-date, in-depth analysis of the situation, it’s available for just-food members to download now.
