The July 2004 package

After the September 2003 Cancún Ministerial Conference ended in deadlock, WTO members in Geneva began efforts to put the negotiations and the rest of the work programme back on track. Work intensified in the first half of 2004, with the new target date of reaching agreement on a package of framework agreements by the end of July, in effect Friday 30 July. The first draft of the “July package” was circulated on 16 July, and members started negotiating intensively in various formats in the fortnight beginning 19 July.
