Director-General Supachai Panitchpakdi, in his final report as Trade Negotiations Committee Chairman, said on 28 July 2005 that achieving a successful Ministerial Conference this December is still possible provided members dedicate themselves to “a politically engaged, results oriented, decision making mode of operation immediately after the (summer) recess”. He said that as he prepares to step down as Chair, he wished to remind members that the negotiations “must be a means of improving economic opportunities and helping to fulfil the hope of development... (and thus) problems in the negotiations cannot be allowed to defeat us”.
