With the Hong Kong WTO Ministerial behind us, tough negotiating deadlines loom in the multilateral trade talks. Will the Doha Round support real development benefits and renewed confidence in the WTO system? What remains for the United States, Europe, and developing countries to do now to forge balanced trade rules and coherent policy approaches which address development concerns?

We are pleased to welcome a distinguished panel of influential officials and experts to consider the diversity of developing country interests on key trade and development issues.

Welcome by Kent H. Hughes, Director, Program on Science, Technology, America, and the Global Economy, Woodrow Wilson Center and Ricardo Melendez-Ortiz, Executive Director, International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development
