Blog: Doha doom and gloom

Catherine Sleep | 27 July 2006

In what can only be referred to as a diplomatic catastrophe, the Doha Round of the WTO talks came crashing to a halt earlier this week. The poor countries that the world has been trying to help will just have to wait, won’t they?

Let Keith guide you through the minefield of international interests
