In July the five year Doha Development Round negotiations were suspended following the collapse of Ministerial level negotiations in Geneva. Calls to resume the negotiations as soon as possible have come from various forums around the world but the future of the negotiations remains highly uncertain.

On 18 December 2006 WTO Director-General Pascal Lamy hosted an on-line chat to discuss this suspension, the prospects for relaunching the talks and the future of the WTO and the global trading system. Mr. Lamy welcomed the opportunity to hear YOUR views and take YOUR questions during this chat.
