Documents from the negotiating chairs, 21 April 2011

On 21 April 2011 the negotiating chairs circulated documents representing the product of the work in their negotiating groups. An accompanying report was issued by the Chair of the Trade Negotiations Committee, Pascal Lamy.

Director-General Pascal Lamy, in his cover note to the documents, said that for the first time since the Round was launched in 2001 “Members will have the opportunity to consider the entire Doha package”. He says the picture is “impressive” in the significant progress achieved so far, but also “realistic” in what it shows on the remaining divides. He asked Members to think hard about “the consequences of throwing away ten years of solid multilateral work” and called on members to “use the upcoming weeks to talk to each other and build bridges”.
